What is probate?
Probate is simply the process of applying for permission to administer a will when someone has died. We will manage this process for you and keep you notified each step of the way.
Why Do We Need to Make a Will?
It is estimated the two-thirds of the UK population did not make a will. Unfortunately, our Wills and Probate Solicitors see many examples of what can go wrong while someone dies without the right will.
If there is no will, the prescribed rules apply to who will inherit, in what proportion, and when. This will be able to lead to a variety of problems through stressful times, including:
- If you have kids, your spouse may inherit only a portion of your property.
- Your partner will not inherit at all; if you are unmarried,
- The kids from your first marriage may lose some of their intended inheritance; if you are in a second marriage,
- Your estate may transfer to family members that you do not want to inherit.
There are some benefits of making a will, including:
- You can select who will act as executor.
- You can select who will be the trustee and guardian for your kids.
- You can get advice about Inheritance Tax planning.
- You can leave legacies to family members, friends, and charities.
- You will make sure that your estate transfers to the right people.
- You can give your spouse and make sure that your estate passes to kids from an earlier marriage on their death if you are in a second marriage.
10 reasons for making a will
Writing a will is essential because it lets you control how your estate is divided, and your estate may be distributed if you do not have one, according to the law of intestacy. Have a look at the reasons why to make a will.
Responsibility for your minor children
Your will may not just cover how your property is shared amongst your family, but it also defines other arrangements, such as the custody of your children. It is a complicated topic to think about, but whether you have a family or are pregnant, you will want to ensure your kids are cared for in the situation of your death. Our expert solicitors can handle your case with the utmost sensitivity and give you expert legal guidance on writing this part of the will.
Caring for your partner
The base of this intestacy law is a traditional perception of family. Also, if you have spent about 25 years with your partner, if you are in a civil partnership or unmarried, if you share the estate according to intestacy law, they will be left with nothing. You can care with a will for your partner while you die.
Caring for loved ones
Your stepchildren and foster children will not be considered beneficiaries by intestacy law if they are not adopted. We would like you to choose who should benefit from your property and strongly advise you to make a will as quickly as possible.
A will can also define arrangements like who will be able to live in your home. Your children or partner may be forced to leave their home without the will because someone else is entitled to part of it. Also, your loved ones may not be able to pay out them.
Defining medical treatment
If you are too ill to communicate, your will can also cover your final wish regarding medical therapy. It is called a living will. Respect your wish, your living will should be written really very carefully, and we highly recommend you seek consultation from our legal expert.
Avoiding the intestacy law
This intestacy law is sharing out the estate between various beneficiaries according to a fixed set of rules. This is how someone you even do not know can profit from your property.
Caring for your pet
It is also possible to look after your pet if you want to. In your will, you can make plans for your pet. You can appoint a guardian for your pet in a similar way as you may appoint a guardian for your minor kids. It is much better to discuss with your proposed guardian to make sure they will be willing to take on the role. You may want to leave a part of your property in a simple trust to be used to care for your pet and select trustees to manage the fund.
Minimizing inheritance tax
The value of your estate is not only based on Inheritance tax but the one you leave it to. The property is automatically exempt from inheritance tax which that you leave to your spouse. Property left to your kids or grandkids can generate a lower inheritance tax bill due to the additional threshold available under the residence nil rate band.
If you have a property in your name and care for the people who live there, you can give them a right to reside or leave part of the property.
Avoid family dispute
Unfortunately, sharing out property usually causes disputes within families or other beneficiaries. Writing a will is usually an excellent way to avoid disputes. With a coherent will, we will professionally draft and properly document, and you can share your property without causing any disputes.
Supporting a charity
Usually, many people want to support a charity with part or all of their property. Maybe you benefited from the charity and wished to return something, or perhaps you strongly support their cause.
You are entitled to give your property to whomever you like.
To ensure your selected charity will benefit from your property, you will have to list them as beneficiaries in your will and define what share they will be getting.
