Although DIY options are available for writing a will, hiring an experienced and reputable Birmingham solicitor will help to ensure your will is legally valid and properly fulfils your expectations.

Do I need a will?

A will is a legal document used for people to plan their preferences in regards to how any children they have should be looked after and how their estate should be shared upon his or her death. Wills should be made in writing and signed by yourself and your witnesses to ensure that they are legally recognised. 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.

Types of will

There are various types of wills that can be made to suit different requirements. Common types of wills include:

  • Single wills are considered the most traditional kind of will and are regularly referred to as a testamentary will. They 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 enable individuals to set out their wishes regarding particular medical treatments which they wish to reject should they not have the mental capacity to communicate this at a later date.

What does Probate mean?

The word probate is used to describe the legal and financial processes that need to be followed to deal with the estate and possessions of a person that has died in England or Wales. Probate processes include determining the deceased’s property, paying taxes, taking care of estate accounts and distributing net values.

When might I use a trust?

A trust is used to enable an individual to manage their assets, including money, investments and property. There are different forms of trusts and different tax considerations apply to each of them. Trusts have a number of roles which will have to be fulfilled, such as:

  • A ‘settlor’ - the person who places their assets into a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ which is the individual that is responsible for the management of the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the individual who benefits from 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. Solicitors in Birmingham can assist clients assess their requirement for a trust and produce a thorough trust that sets out their wishes.
