Guide To Hiring A Wakefield Wills, Probate & Trust Solicitor

Looking for a good probate, wills and trusts solicitor in Wakefield? On this page, you can see company profiles about each of the solicitors based in the area which can help you write a will, amend a will or deal with probate. You can also view solicitors in Wakefield that can help with the drafting or management of various types of trusts.

Having a valid will that matches your requirements and offers financial stability for your family is certainly an aspiration for many of us. Although you can find DIY options available for writing a will, hiring a good Wakefield solicitor will ensure that your will is legally valid and fully matches your requirements.

Do I need a will?

Wills are widely used to legally document a person’s wishes for the sharing of any assets or property they own, as well as the care of their children following 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.

What are the different types of will?

Dependent upon a person’s needs, there are a number of different wills that can be used. Some commonly used types of will include:

  • 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.
  • Partners might choose to draw up a mirror will that is more or less identical to their partners and allows them to leave assets to the same beneficiary as each other.
  • Living wills do not relate to the distribution of assets but instead, are utilised to arrange a person’s wishes for his or her future receipt of specific medical attention if they lack the capacity to communicate this at some point in the future.

What is Probate?

The term probate can be used to describe the legal and financial processes that are followed to handle the estate of a deceased person in England or Wales. The processes relating to probate consist of the identification of the deceased’s property, the payment of relevant taxes, the management of the estate’s accounts and the distribution of assets.

What are trusts?

Trusts are used to manage the assets of a person, including their property, money and investments. There are several different types of trusts which have different tax considerations. There are a few roles that have to be filled for a trust:

  • A settlor’ who is the individual that places their assets into a trust
  • A ‘trustee’ who will be in charge of managing the trust
  • A ‘beneficiary’ who is the individual who enjoy the benefits 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. Wakefield trust solicitors can support a settlor in creating a legally observant trust that communicates their wishes and acknowledges relevant assets.
