Having a legally valid will that reflects your preferences and offers financial security for members of your family is an aspiration for most of us. Although there are DIY options available for writing a will, hiring a reputable Walsall solicitor will help to ensure your will is valid and thoroughly fits your wishes.

Do I need a will?

A will is a legal document which can be used for individuals to state their wishes regarding the distribution and management of their estate and the care of their children in the event of 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.

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 regarded as the most traditional kind of will and is often called a testamentary will. A single will will be formally prepared and then signed in front of witnesses.
  • Mirror wills are taken out by a couple and they are nearly identical, in which both people leave assets for the same beneficiary when they die, normally to each other in the first instance.
  • Living wills are not concerned with asset distribution and instead are used to enable individuals to determine their wishes relating to particular medical procedures which they wish to decline in case they do not have the mental capacity to communicate this at a later date.

What is Probate?

Probate means the formal processes which are followed to take care of property and possessions following a person’s death in England or Wales. Probate involves a number of required tasks 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.

What is a trust?

A trust can be used to manage assets for people, including their money, investments and property. There are numerous different types of trusts which have different tax considerations. Every trust requires the following roles to be performed:

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

Trusts are made for various 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 when they die. Walsall Solicitors will support a settlor in preparing a legally observant trust that communicates their wishes and acknowledges relevant assets.
