Having a legally valid will which represents your preferences and gives financial stability for members of your family is undoubtedly an ambition for many people. Although there may be DIY options available for writing a will, hiring an experienced and reputable Ipswich solicitor will ensure your will is legally valid and perfectly fits your expectations.

Do I need a will?

A will is a legal document that enables an individual to communicate their wishes with regards to the distribution of their estate and the care of any children in the event of 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 estate will be distributed in accordance with the law and not necessarily observant of their wishes.

What Types of Will Are Available?

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

  • A single will is regarded as the most traditional variety of will and it is sometimes referred to as a testamentary will. A single will will be formally prepared and then signed in the presence of witnesses.
  • Mirror wills are an option available to couples who want to create near identical wills which allow them to leave assets to the same beneficiaries, normally each other in the first instance.
  • Living wills are not concerned with the distribution of assets and instead are used to enable people to define their preferences about particular medical procedures they wish to reject in case they do not have the mental capacity to communicate this will at a later date.

What is Probate?

The word probate is used to describe the legal and financial processes that have to be followed to deal with the estate of a individual that has died in England or Wales. Probate processes include identifying the deceased individual's possessions, paying required taxes, managing the accounts of the estate and distributing net assets.

When might I use a trust?

A trust is used to enable a person to manage their assets, including money, investments and property. There are different types of trusts that can be used, with each having their particular tax considerations. Every trust demands the following roles to be fulfilled:

  • A ‘settlor’ who is the person who creates and includes the assets within the trust
  • A ‘trustee’ who will be given the task of managing the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the person who benefits from the trust

Trusts could be used for numerous reasons which includes to protect family assets, to gift assets when the settlor is alive, to pass on assets upon the death of the settlor, to manage the assets of a minor or to manage assets of someone that is incapacitated. Ipswich Solicitors would be able to help clients evaluate their requirement for a trust and to set up a comprehensive trust that meets their requirements.
