Guide to Hiring Wills and Probate Solicitors in Northampton

Looking for the best wills, probate and trusts solicitor in Northampton?

You can also view solicitors in Northampton that can help with the formation or management of various kinds of trusts.

Having a valid will which reflects your requirements and gives financial security for members of your family is definitely an aspiration for many of us. Although you will find DIY options available for writing a will, hiring an experienced Northampton solicitor will ensure your will is legally valid and completely meets your requirements.

Do I need a will?

A will is a legal document which is used for people to arrange their preferences in relation to how their children should be cared for and how their assets will be shared in the event of their death. Wills should be set out in writing and signed by you and witnesses in order to ensure that they are legally binding. 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.

Types of will

There are different types of wills that can be used in order to suit the individual needs of a person. Some popular types of wills are as follows:

  • A single will is sometimes known as a testamentary will and is the most traditional type of will. The single will is formally created and signed in the presence of witnesses.
  • Partners may choose to draft a mirror will which is pretty much the same as their partners and allows them to leave assets to the same beneficiaries as each other.
  • Living wills are not concerned with asset distribution and instead are used to enable people to define their preferences regarding specific medical procedures which they want to decline in case they do not have the mental capacity to communicate this at a later date.

What does Probate mean?

Probate is the formal legal processes which are followed to manage property and possessions following a person’s death in England or Wales. Probate processes include identifying the deceased’s legal property, paying taxes, taking care of estate accounts and distributing net values.

What is a trust?

A trust is used to manage a person’s assets such as their property, investments and money. There are different types of trusts available, each having their own tax considerations. Every trust demands the following roles to be performed:

  • A ‘settlor’ - the individual that puts assets into a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ who will be responsible for managing the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the individual who 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. Northampton trust solicitors are able to help clients evaluate their requirement for a trust and put together a comprehensive trust that sets out their wishes.
