Having a legally valid will that reflects your requirements and gives financial security for your loved ones is usually an aspiration for many of us. Although DIY options can be found for writing a will, hiring a good Leicester solicitor will make certain your will is valid and completely satisfies your wishes.

Do I need a will?

A will is a legal document used by people to specify their preferences with regards to the distribution and management of their estate and the care of their children in the event of their death. In order to ensure that the document is legally binding, wills should be made in writing and signed by you and witnesses. When a person dies without having made a will, their estate will be distributed in accordance with the law and not necessarily observant of their wishes.

What Types of Will Are Available?

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 common kind. This type of will is formally prepared and signed in the presence of witnesses.
  • Mirror wills are an option available to couples who want to create near identical wills which allow them to leave assets to the same beneficiaries, normally each other in the first instance.
  • A living will enables people to set out their preferences for declining specific medical treatments in the future in case they lose the capacity to communicate at a later stage.

What is Probate?

Probate is the legal and financial processes that are followed to deal with the assets and property of a person who has died. The processes that are involved in probate will include the identification of the deceased’s property, the payment of taxes, the administration of the estate’s accounts and the distribution of assets.

What are trusts?

Trusts are used to manage the assets of an individual, including their property, money and investments. There are different types of trusts available, each possessing particular tax considerations. There are a variety of roles that must be filled for a trust:

  • A ‘settlor’ who is the person who makes and includes the assets of the trust
  • A ‘trustee’ - the individual who will manage the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the person that receives the benefit of the trust

Trusts are made for numerous 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 when they die. Solicitors in Leicester are able to help clients assess their need for a trust and create a thorough trust that sets out their wishes.
