Wills, Trusts & Probate FAQs

Welcome to the Wills, Trusts & Probate FAQs section at GN Law. We understand that planning for the future and managing estate matters can be both intricate and daunting. Whether you’re considering drafting a will, establishing trusts, or dealing with probate, having the right information is crucial for informed decisions.

A will is a legal document that sets out how a person’s assets should be distributed after their death.

It is highly recommended that you have a will, regardless of the size of your estate or the complexity of your assets. Without a will, your assets may not be distributed according to your wishes, and this can cause disputes and additional stress for your loved ones.

If you die without a will, your assets will be distributed according to the rules of intestacy. This means that your assets may not be distributed in the way that you would have wanted, and your loved ones may face additional stress and costs in resolving any disputes.

Probate is the legal process of administering a deceased person’s estate, which involves gathering and valuing the assets, paying any debts and taxes, and distributing the remaining assets to the beneficiaries named in the will.

It is not a legal requirement to have a solicitor make a will for you, but it is highly recommended. A solicitor can ensure that your will is legally valid, clear, and takes into account all of your assets and wishes. This can help avoid disputes and ensure that your wishes are carried out as you intended.

A trust is a legal arrangement in which a person or entity (the trustee) holds and manages assets on behalf of another person or group of people (the beneficiaries). Trusts can be used for a variety of purposes, including estate planning, tax planning, and charitable giving.

Inheritance tax is a tax on the value of a person’s estate after they die. In the UK, inheritance tax is currently payable on estates valued over £325,000. There are a number of exemptions and reliefs available that can reduce the amount of inheritance tax payable, and a solicitor can provide advice on how to plan your estate to minimise inheritance tax.
