What is a Will?

A Will is a legal document that outlines how you would like your estate to be distributed after your death. It helps to ensure that your assets are gifted to the people of your choosing in the event of your death. If you die without a Will, your estate is distributed in accordance with the rules of intestacy which means your assets may not go to the people of your choice.

What is a trust?

A trust can be set up in one's lifetime or as part of a Will. It's a way of managing assets in your lifetime or protecting the inheritance for a loved one. A trust can protect against sideways inheritance, protect assets if a beneficiary is not sensible at handling money, or if a beneficiary is in receipt of benefits and inheritance will impact the money they receive. A trust can also protect inheritance from divorce.

What is probate?

Probate is the legal and financial process of dealing with a deceased estate. Probate is granted by the Probate office which allows your executors or personal representative to gather your assets, pay your liabilities and distribute your estate in accordance with your Will or laws of intestacy.

Expert Will writing service in Sheffield

Writing a Will gives you control over who receives your assets after you die. Lots of young families think that they do not need a Will as they have no assets to leave but when you have a young family you need a Will to name Guardians to care for your young children.

A carefully drafted Will is more than just a legal document; it's a testament to your legacy and a gift to those you care about. Without a Will in place, your assets and possessions may not be distributed as you wish. This can lead to unnecessary stress and complications for your loved ones during an already difficult time.

There's no better time than the present. As an adult, there's no reason why you shouldn't consider writing your will when you get the time. 

It's also important to remember that you can always add to your will once it's written - it's always there to be edited however you see fit. 

It's difficult to say. It also depends largely on whether you're writing your will yourself, or if a solicitor is doing it for you. 

If you're writing the Will yourself, it could take weeks for you to decide how your assets will be distributed. However, if you're giving instructions to a solicitor, you might only have a few hours or less to do so. 

In short, yes. However, it's only advisable if you cannot afford a solicitor or if your Will is particularly straightforward. 

We would usually advise you to have a solicitor at least check your will after you've written it to ensure it'll have the effect you want. 

Yes, you can update your will using a document called a codicil. A codicil is a separate document from the original will that modifies one or more parts, while the rest of the Will still stands. 

Alternatively, you can destroy your current will and rewrite a new one if you see this to be more convenient. 

Yes, you can contest a Will. You'd normally do this if you don't agree or trust the terms set out in a Will. However, it is difficult to successfully contest a will and the process varies across the UK. 

The executor is the legal term for the person you choose to administer your estate. An executor is usually someone who know well, such as a family member, spouse or friend.
