Guide To Hiring Wills And Probate Solicitors In Doncaster

Are you looking for a wills and probate solicitor in Doncaster? On this page, you can compare detailed information relating to all of the solicitors located in the area which can help you write or amend a will or help with probate related issues. You can also view solicitors in Doncaster that can assist with the formation or management of different types of trusts.

Having a valid will which represents your requirements and gives financial stability for your loved ones is an aspiration for many people. Although DIY options can be purchased for writing a will, hiring an experienced Doncaster solicitor will make certain your will is legally valid and thoroughly fits your needs.

What is a will?

A will is a legal document that can be used by people to stipulate 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 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.

What are the different types of will?

There are various types of wills that can be made to suit different requirements. Some popular types of wills are as follows:

  • A single will is considered the most traditional variety of will which is sometimes known as a testamentary will. A single will will be prepared formally and signed in the presence of witnesses.
  • Mirror wills are those that are taken out by a couple and they are pretty much identical, in which each partner will leave assets to the same beneficiaries when they die, frequently to one another in the first instance.
  • Living wills do not refer to asset distribution and instead, are utilised to plan a person’s wishes regarding their future receipt of specific medical care if they lack the capacity to communicate this in the future.

What does Probate mean?

Probate is the term which can be used to describe the legal and financial processes required to deal with the assets of a deceased individual in England or Wales. Probate processes can include identifying the deceased person’s possessions and property, paying necessary taxes, managing the accounts of the estate and distributing net assets.

When might I use a trust?

Trusts are used to manage the assets of an individual, including their property, money and investments. There are different types of trusts that are available, each having their own tax considerations. Every trust requires the following roles to be fulfilled:

  • A settlor’ who is the person that places their assets into a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ who is responsible for the management of the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the person that receives the benefit of the trust

Trusts could be used for a number of reasons including to protect the assets of a family, to gift assets when the settlor is alive, to pass on assets upon the death of the settlor, to handle the assets of a minor or to manage assets of an incapacitated person. Doncaster trust solicitors will be able to help clients evaluate their requirement for a trust and draw up a thorough trust that sets out their requirements.
