Having a valid will which matches your preferences and offers financial stability for partners and children is an aspiration for many people. Although you can find DIY options available for writing a will, hiring a reputable Morley solicitor will make certain your will is legally valid and completely fits your needs.

Do I need a will?

A will is a legal document which allows an individual to communicate their wishes regarding the distribution of their estate and the care of any 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. If a will is not made, the deceased’s estate will be divided as per the law and not necessarily as per their wishes.

Choosing the Right Type 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:

  • Single wills can also be known as testamentary wills and are the most common kind. This particular 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 men and women to set out their wishes for turning down particular medical treatments in the future in case they lack the capacity to communicate at a later date.

What does Probate mean?

Probate is the term given to the legal and financial processes that are followed to deal with the assets and property of a person that has died. Probate processes include determining the deceased’s legal property, paying taxes, managing estate accounts and distributing net values.

What are trusts?

A trust is used to control a person’s assets such as their property, investments and money. There are different forms of trusts and different tax considerations apply to each of them. Trusts have a number of roles that are required to be fulfilled, which includes:

  • A ‘settlor’ who will be the individual that puts some of their assets into a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ who will be accountable for managing the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who will get the benefit of the trust

Trusts can be utilised for several reasons which includes to protect family assets, to gift assets when the settlor is alive, to pass on assets upon the death of the settlor, to handle the assets of a minor or to manage assets of an incapacitated person. Solicitors in Morley will support a settlor in developing a legally observant trust that communicates their wishes and acknowledges relevant assets.
