Having a legally valid will which represents your wishes and provides financial stability for young children and loved ones will be an aspiration for most of us. Although DIY options might be available for writing a will, hiring an experienced Scunthorpe solicitor will make certain your will is valid and properly fulfils your requirements.

Do I need a will?

A will is a legal document that can be used for people to lay down their wishes in regards 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.

What Types of Will Are Available?

There are various types of wills that can be made to suit different requirements. Some of the most common include:

  • Single wills can also be known as testamentary wills and are the most common kind. This kind of will is formally prepared and signed in the presence of witnesses.
  • The option is available for couples to draw up a mirror will which enables them to create almost identical wills, leaving their assets to the same beneficiaries, usually each other in the first place.
  • 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 does Probate mean?

Probate is the term given to the legal and financial processes that are followed to look after the assets and property of a person that has died. Probate processes include determining the deceased’s property, paying taxes, managing estate accounts and distributing net values.

What are trusts?

A trust is used to enable a person to manage their assets, including money, investments and property. There are different types of trusts at your disposal, with each having their particular tax considerations. Trusts need the following roles to be fulfilled:

  • A ‘settlor’ who is the individual that puts assets into a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ who is responsible for the management of the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the person that will benefits from the trust

Trusts can be used for a variety of purposes including to distribute assets during the life of the settlor or following their death, to manage assets on behalf of a child or incapacitated person or to protect the assets of a family. A solicitor in Scunthorpe will help their clients to recognise the need for a trust and to create one in a legal way, reflective of the settlor’s wishes.
