Having a valid will which reflects your requirements and gives financial stability for members of your family will be an ambition for many of us. Although DIY options can be found for writing a will, hiring an experienced and reputable Penistone solicitor will ensure your will is valid and thoroughly fulfils your wishes.

What is the purpose of a will?

Wills are widely used to legally document an individual's wishes for the sharing of their estate and assets as well as the care of their children following their death. Wills should be set out in writing and signed by you and witnesses in order to ensure that they are legally binding. The estates of people who die without having made a will are divided as per the law and not always in accordance with the wishes of the person.

Types 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:

  • Single wills are also known as testamentary wills and are the most traditional variety. This particular will is prepared and signed in the presence of witnesses.
  • Mirror wills are those that are taken out by a couple and are almost identical, in which each partner will leave assets for the same beneficiary upon their death, normally to one another in the first instance.
  • A living will enables men and women to set out their preferences for declining certain medical treatments in the future in case they lose the capacity to communicate at a later date.

What is Probate?

Probate is the term given to the legal and financial processes that are followed to take care of the assets and property of a person who has died. Probate processes include identifying the deceased’s legal property, paying taxes, taking care of estate accounts and distributing net values.

When might I use a trust?

Trusts are used to manage the assets of an individual, including their property, money and investments. There are numerous different kinds of trusts which each have different tax considerations. Trusts need the following duties to be satisfied:

  • A settlor’ who is the individual that puts their assets into a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ - the individual who will manage the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the person that receives the benefit of the trust

Trusts are utilised for a number of 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. Penistone trust solicitors will support a settlor in setting up a legally observant trust that conveys their wishes and recognises relevant assets.
