Having a legally valid will that reflects your wishes and provides financial stability for partners and children will be an ambition for many of us. Although DIY options can be purchased for writing a will, hiring an experienced and reputable Bath solicitor will ensure your will is valid and properly fits your needs.

Do I need a will?

A will is a legal document that can be used for individuals to indicate their wishes with regards to the distribution and management of their estate and the care of their children 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 assets are divided as per the law and not necessarily in accordance with their wishes.

Choosing the Right Type of Will

There are a number of different types of wills that can be used for different needs. Some commonly used types of will include:

  • A single will is the most traditional kind of will and is often called a testamentary will. A single will is prepared formally and then signed in front of witnesses.
  • The option is available for couples to write 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 is Probate?

Probate describes the formal processes that are followed to deal with property and possessions following an individual's death in England or Wales. Probate processes may include identifying the deceased individual's possessions, paying necessary taxes, managing the accounts of the estate and distributing net assets.

What are trusts?

Trusts are used to manage the assets of a person, including their property, finances and investments. There are a variety of different varieties of trusts and they each have different tax considerations. Trusts have some roles that have got to be fulfilled, such as:

  • A ‘settlor’ who is the person that creates and includes the assets of the trust
  • A ‘trustee’ which is the individual who is in charge of the trust management
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who receives the benefit of the trust

Trusts are set up for various 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 upon their death. A Bath 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.
