FAQs

Having a legal will in place before your death can take a huge amount of unnecessary stress away from your loved ones at a time which will already be hugely stressful. If you don’t have a legal will written then all assets will be shared out in a standard way as defined by law which may not be aligned with your wishes. Wills can also help in reducing the amount of inheritance tax that is to be paid. They are especially important if there are children or other dependants involved as these individuals will require financial support.

Probate is the legal process that assesses the legitimacy of a will and, if the will is deemed legitimate, power to handle the deceased person’s estate is then handed over to the executors to pay off any debts and then distribute the estate as outlined in the will. This is knows as estate administration.

The most frequent reasons for changes to a will include:

  • New family members. This is, most frequently, when a child is born into the family. You may wish to change the way the estate is split up in the event of a child being born. There are also occasions where named beneficiaries may die and so you would need to change the way in which your estate is split.
  • Upon getting married – As soon as you enter into a marriage or civil partnership your will is automatically revoked and you will require a new one.
  • Divorce or dissolution of civil partnership – In the event of either of these cases your ex-spouse would not be able to benefit from the will, nor can they act as an executor or trustee. A new will is required where you can specify whether you would like your ex-partner to receive anything.
  • Separation – in the event of a separation your will should be immediately reviewed as the above does not apply.
  • Financial Changes – Any significant increase or decrease in finances should result in the alteration of your will to reflect these changes.
  • Inheritance Tax – If your estate increases and now exceeds the inheritance tax threshold it may be advisable to review your will.
