Having a valid will that reflects your preferences and provides financial stability for partners and children is surely an ambition for most of us. Although there are some DIY options available for writing a will, hiring a reputable Norwich solicitor will help to ensure your will is valid and perfectly satisfies your needs.

What is a will?

A will is a legal document which enables a person to communicate their wishes regarding the distribution of their assets and the care of any children in the event of their death. To ensure that a will is legally binding, it should be written and signed by you and your witnesses. If a will is not made, the deceased’s estate will be divided as per the law and not necessarily as per their wishes.

What Types of Will Are Available?

Dependent upon a person’s needs, there are a number of different wills that can be used. Some of the most common include:

  • Single wills are the most traditional type of will and are regularly referred to as a testamentary will. They are prepared formally and signed in the presence of witnesses.
  • Mirror wills can be chosen by a couple and they are nearly identical, in which both people leave assets for the same beneficiaries upon their death, typically to each other in the first instance.
  • Living wills do not refer to the distribution of assets but instead, are used to determine a person’s preferences for their future receipt of particular medical attention if they lack the capacity to communicate this in the future.

What does Probate mean?

Probate is the legal and financial processes that are followed to manage the assets and property of a deceased individual in England and Wales. The processes associated with probate consist of the identification of the deceased’s property, the payment of relevant taxes, the administration of the estate’s accounts and the distribution of assets.

What is a trust?

A trust is used to enable an individual to manage their assets, including money, investments and property. There are a number of different varieties of trusts and they each have different tax considerations. Trusts need the following duties to be satisfied:

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

Trusts can be used for a range of purposes including to gift assets during the life of the settlor or following their death, to manage assets of incapacitated people or children or to protect the assets of a family. A Norwich trusts solicitor will help their clients to recognise the need for a trust and to create the trust in a legal way, reflective of the settlor’s wishes.
