Although there are DIY options available for writing a will, hiring a reputable Newcastle solicitor will make certain your will is legally valid and perfectly meets your requirements.

What is the purpose of a will?

A will is a legal document that can be used for individuals to specify their preferences 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.

What are the different types of will?

There are different types of wills that can be used in order to suit the individual needs of a person. Some of the most common include:

  • A single will is considered the most traditional variety of will which is sometimes known as a testamentary will. A single will is formally prepared and 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.
  • A living will enables people to set out their wishes for declining particular medical treatments in the future in case they lose the mental capacity to communicate at a later date.

What does Probate mean?

Probate is the legal and financial processes that are followed to handle the assets and property of a deceased person in England and Wales. Probate processes consist of identifying the deceased individual's property and possessions, paying relevant taxes, managing the accounts of the estate and distributing net assets.

Trusts

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, each possessing their own tax considerations. Trusts require the following roles to be satisfied:

  • A ‘settlor’ who will be the person that places assets in a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ - this is the person who will manage the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who gets the benefit of 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. Newcastle trust solicitors will support a settlor in setting up a legally observant trust that communicates their wishes and acknowledges relevant assets.
