Either way, it is essential that you give serious consideration to making or updating your will as a matter of priority.
Optional services arranged via this company include arranging Lasting Power of Attorney, executorship assistance and, estate & trust planning via Solidus and Will storage.
Wills, trusts and inheritance tax mitigation
To ensure that your assets are shared out as you intend it is advisable to consider estate planning and write a will that makes your wishes clear.
Around 60% of adults in the UK don’t have a will according to figures from Opinium Research 2016. Regardless of their intentions, this means that their assets will be dealt with according to standard Government rules on intestacy (dying without a will).
What to put in your will
Typically, a will sets out how you’d like your assets or ‘estate’ to be shared, and by whom:
- Property: who takes on ownership of your property after your death
- Assets: who benefits from financial assets such as shares or savings
- Possessions: who you want to receive your personal possessions, for example, paintings, jewellery or items of sentimental value.
- Your executors: named individuals who will act on your behalf to distribute assets in line with the instructions in your will
- Children’s guardians: named individuals you trust to look after the interests of your children aged under 18.
- Charitable donations: named charities that you would like to receive a lump sum, assets or a share of your estate.
Our service with Adviser Will provides you with a straightforward way to record your wishes in a will.
If your will was written some time ago it is useful to check that it is still fit for purpose. This may be especially important if you have become married or divorced, there are now children or grandchildren, or your financial situation has changed. A will review will determine whether your will reflects your current wishes about who should benefit from your estate.
