Although you can find DIY options available for writing a will, hiring an experienced Canterbury solicitor will make sure your will is valid and properly meets your requirements.

What is a will?

A will is a legal document that can be used by individuals to stipulate their wishes relating to the distribution and management of their estate and the care of their children in the event of their death. Wills should be made in writing and signed by yourself and your witnesses to ensure that they are legally recognised. When a person dies without having made a will, their assets are divided as per the law and not necessarily in accordance with their wishes.

Choosing the Right Type of Will

There are a number of different types of wills that can be used for different needs. Common types of wills include:

  • Single wills are the most traditional kind of will and are also referred to as a testamentary will. These are prepared formally and signed in the presence of witnesses.
  • A couple might want to take out a mirror will that is practically identical to their partners and allows them to leave assets to the same beneficiaries as one another.
  • Living wills allow people to set out their wishes to decline specific treatments in the future in case they lose the ability to communicate their wishes at a later date.

What is Probate?

Probate is the term which is used to describe the legal and financial processes needed to handle the assets of a deceased individual in England or Wales. Probate processes can include identifying the deceased individual's property and possessions, paying relevant taxes, managing the accounts of the estate and distributing net assets.

When might I use a trust?

A trust is used to manage a person’s assets such as their property, investments and money. There are a variety of different varieties of trusts which each have different tax considerations. Trusts require the following duties to be satisfied:

  • A ‘settlor’ who is the person that creates and includes the assets in the trust
  • A ‘trustee’ who will be accountable for managing the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the individual that will enjoy the benefits of the trust

Trusts are utilised for a number of reasons including to protect a family’s assets, manage the assets of a child or incapacitated person or to distribute assets during the settlor’s life or upon their death. Solicitors in Canterbury would be able to help clients evaluate their need for a trust and draw up a comprehensive trust that sets out their requirements.
