Although you will find DIY options available for writing a will, hiring an experienced Sunderland solicitor will make sure your will is legally valid and completely satisfies your expectations.

What is a will?

Wills are widely used to legally document an individual's wishes for the sharing of any property or assets they own, as well as the care of their children following their death. To ensure that a will is legally binding, it should be written and signed by you and your witnesses. 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 popular types of wills are as follows:

  • Single wills are the most traditional sort of will and are sometimes referred to as a testamentary will. These are prepared formally 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.
  • Living wills are not concerned with the distribution of assets and instead are used to allow individuals to set out their wishes concerning specific medical procedures that they wish to decline if they do not have the capacity to communicate this at some point in the future.

What is Probate?

Probate means the formal processes that are followed to handle property and possessions following an individual's death in England or Wales. Probate involves a variety of processes which includes the identification of a deceased person’s property, payment of taxes, administration of the accounts of the estate and distribution of net assets.

When might I use a trust?

A trust is used to manage a person’s assets such as their property, investments and money. There are different varieties of trusts and different tax considerations apply to each. Each trust demands the following roles to be undertaken:

  • A ‘settlor’ who is the individual that puts assets in a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ who is responsible for managing the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who gets the benefit of the trust

Trusts can be utilised for numerous reasons including to protect family assets, to gift assets when the settlor is alive, to pass on assets upon the death of the settlor, to control the assets of a minor or to manage assets of an incapacitated person. A Sunderland solicitor can help their client to understand issues within their estate and to arrange their affairs legally and as per their wishes using a relevant trust.
