Having a valid will which matches your preferences and provides financial security for your family will be an ambition for many of us. Although DIY options can be purchased for writing a will, hiring an experienced and reputable Wolverhampton solicitor will help to ensure your will is legally valid and fully suits your needs.

Do I need a will?

Wills are widely used to legally document a person’s wishes for the sharing of their estate and assets as well as the care of their children upon 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 assets are divided as per the law and not necessarily in accordance with their wishes.

Types of will

There are different types of wills that can be used in order to suit the individual needs of a person. Some popular types of wills are as follows:

  • A single will is sometimes known as a testamentary will and is the most traditional type of will. The single will is formally created and signed in front 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 do not relate to the distribution of assets and instead, are used to define an individual's wishes for their future receipt of certain medical treatment should they lack the mental capacity to communicate this at some point in the future.

What does Probate mean?

Probate is the term given to the legal and financial processes that are followed to control the assets and property of a person who has died. The processes that are involved in probate will include the identification of the deceased’s property, the payment of relevant taxes, the administration of the estate’s accounts and the distribution of assets.

Trusts

A trust can be utilised to control assets for people, such as their money, investments and property. There are different types of trusts available, with each possessing their particular tax considerations. Every trust requires the following roles to be fulfilled:

  • A ‘settlor’ - this is the person that places assets into a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ who is in control of managing the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the person which will have 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. A Wolverhampton solicitor will help their clients to recognise the need for a trust and to create the trust in a legal way, reflective of the settlor’s wishes.
