Having a legally valid will that reflects your requirements and offers financial stability for members of your family is usually an aspiration for many of us. Although DIY options can be found for writing a will, hiring a good Oxford solicitor will help to ensure your will is valid and perfectly suits your wishes.

What is the purpose of a will?

A will is a legal document which allows an individual to communicate their wishes regarding the distribution of their estate and the care of any children following 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 assets are divided as per the law and not necessarily in accordance with their wishes.

Types of will

There are a number of different types of wills that can be used for different needs. 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 front of witnesses.
  • For couples, the option is available for them 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 are not concerned with asset distribution and instead serve to enable people to lay out their preferences about particular medical procedures that they would like to reject if they do not have the mental capacity to communicate this will at some point in the future.

What is Probate?

Probate refers to the formal processes which are followed to handle property and possessions following a person’s death in England or Wales. Probate involves a range of actions such as the identification of a deceased person’s property, payment of taxes, administration of the accounts of the estate and distribution of net assets.

What are trusts?

Trusts are used to manage the assets of a person, including their property, finances and investments. There are different types of trusts that can be utilised, each having their particular tax considerations. Each trust needs the following roles to be undertaken:

  • A ‘settlor’ who is the person who makes and includes the assets of the trust
  • A ‘trustee’ who is in control of managing the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the person 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. Oxford trust solicitors will support a settlor in preparing a legally observant trust that conveys their wishes and acknowledges relevant assets.
