How Our Wills And Trusts Solicitors Help Local People
Rely on our wills and trust solicitors to take care of every aspect of creating wills and trusts. Whatever combination best suits your particular needs and circumstances.
That’s where we start. Discussing your circumstances with you in-depth to be sure we are going to be creating the best solution for your specific requirements and wishes.
We also understand that – no matter how important we all know it is to plan for the future – this can be a difficult subject to talk about.
That’s why we also do everything we can to make the process of setting up a trust or writing a will as stress-free, easy, and supported as possible.
What Is A Will?
A will is an important legal document that lets you choose what will happen to your estate – your possessions, your home and any property you own, any money you might have in bank accounts – after you pass away.
If you don’t have a legal and valid will that makes your wishes plain and unambiguous, you risk a set of automatic laws (called the Rules of Intestacy) being used to decide what happens to your estate after you are gone.
Our friendly and highly experienced will solicitors make sure that your wishes will be followed. Your assets will be protected. And the future of your family and loved ones secured.
If things change at any point, updating your will to reflect that is simple. All you need to do is get in touch with us and we can find the most suitable method of ensuring your will continues to safeguard the interests of those you wish it to.
What Is A Trust?
A trust lets you protect assets – such as property, shares, or money in your bank accounts – for someone else. A trusted person – a “trustee” – is chosen to manage those assets so the person you want to benefit from them (the “beneficiary”) is able to do so.
Trusts have many benefits. Not least, the fact that they can help reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax your loved ones have to pay, protecting the fruits of your hard work.
But on top of this benefit, trusts can actually be used in a wide array of situations – both during your life and to protect your assets after you pass away:
- Putting money into trust for a child – if a loved one might not yet be old enough to handle assets you have put aside for them, a trust can ensure those assets are safe until they come of age.
- Preparing for your own or a loved one’s future care – it’s not uncommon for trusts to be used to set up provisions for someone’s future care. This might be yourself, if you expect your situation to change. It could also be someone else.
- Set aside assets from your estate – this can minimise the amount of Inheritance Tax that needs to be paid or be useful in other situations, such as bankruptcy.
In all cases, a legal document known as the “trust deed” governs how the trustee or trustees are allowed to use the assets for the benefit of the beneficiaries.
This means that setting up a trust just right takes care and expertise. Our specialist trust solicitors understand all the options when it comes to organising, managing, and administering a trust.
We give you complete peace of mind that everything is airtight and secure. And that your own future or that of your loved ones is protected.
