What to include in your Will
Different people need to cover different areas in their Will depending on their situation. If you are elderly or a parent you would consider Powers of Attorney more than someone who is young, unmarried and has no dependents.
If you are unsure about the different topics you need to cover in your Will, Jeffrey Mills Solicitors can help and advise you to make sure that your loved ones are fully protected.
Please click on the characters below to find out what areas they would need to cover.
If you share ownership of a property with a spouse or partner then your half of the property may automatically pass to your spouse or partner under the law of survivorship. In the event that both of you die it is important to state who you wish your estate to pass to, and who will be the executors of your Will.
For children under the age of 18, your Will should clearly state who will become the guardian of your children and how you will support them. If you are living together and have children from a previous relationship then their biological parent would have the responsibility to look after them if they are fit and willing.
It should also state where the money should come from in order to look after them; this usually comes in the form of trusts.
If children inherit money or property it will be held in trust until they have reached the legal age of 18 when they can choose how to manage the trust.
