Having a legally valid will which matches your requirements and offers financial security for your loved ones is surely an aspiration for many of us. Although there are DIY options available for writing a will, hiring an experienced Dartford solicitor will ensure your will is valid and properly fulfils your wishes.

What is the purpose of a will?

A will is a legal document which enables an individual to communicate their wishes concerning the distribution of their assets and the care of any children upon their death. In order to ensure that the document is legally binding, wills should be made in writing and signed by you and witnesses. The estates of people who die without having made a will are divided as per the law and not always in accordance with the wishes of the person.

Types of will

There are various types of wills that can be made to suit different requirements. Some commonly used types of will include:

  • Single wills can also be known as testamentary wills and are the most traditional kind. This kind of will is prepared and signed in the presence of witnesses.
  • Partners may want to draw up a mirror will that is more or less the same as their partners and enables them to leave assets to the same beneficiary as each other.
  • Living wills are not concerned with the distribution of assets and instead are used to allow individuals to lay out their preferences regarding particular medical treatments which they wish to decline in case they do not have the capacity to communicate this in the future.

What is Probate?

Probate is the term that is used when describing the legal and financial processes required to handle the assets of a deceased individual in England or Wales. Probate processes may include identifying the deceased individual's possessions and property, paying necessary taxes, managing the accounts of the estate and distributing net assets.

What is a trust?

A trust is used to control a person’s assets such as their property, investments and money. There are a number of different types of trusts which have different tax considerations. Trusts have several roles which will need to be fulfilled, such as:

  • A ‘settlor’ who is the person that makes and includes the assets in the trust
  • A ‘trustee’ who will be given the task of managing the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is given the benefit of the trust

Trusts are made for various 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. A solicitor in Dartford can help clients to understand vulnerabilities within their estate and to arrange their affairs legally and as per their wishes using an appropriate trust.
