The Direct Wills Way

Direct Will Trusts

At Direct Will Trusts, we know how difficult writing your will can be. Whether you are in your early twenties or your late eighties, everyone should ensure they have a written will. It is never too late to consider the legal ramifications of creating a will, from division of assets to power of attorney, making a will gives you and your loved ones piece of mind.

Contact us today to make an appointment, and together we can help you create a secure future for your family.

Why Write a Will?

No one wants to leave their partner with a complex legal issue, but if you are an unmarried couple there is no “common law” equivalent to a legal marriage. Should a person die without a will, their possessions may fall to family whom they have not spoken to for years, rather than the loved one they have resided with for decades.

Writing a will removes doubt surrounding your wishes, and lets you leave suitable provision for your partner, giving them security during what will be a very difficult time.

Even if you are married, having a written will allows you to determine other gifts that you may wish to leave the rest of your family. From financial trusts for your grandchildren, to leaving a bequest to your favourite charity, and ensuring that Auntie Irene’s necklace goes to your daughter, having a will clearly sets out your wishes for your possessions after you are gone.

Having a will helps solicitors and family during times of sudden illness. You can appoint a trusted individual to be given “power of attorney”, meaning that should you be incapacitated they can make decisions about your medical care, including any end of life care that you may need. You can also set out any wishes you have for your funeral, and name the people you wish to act as executors of your will, as they will work with your solicitor to make sure that your wishes are followed promptly and appropriately.

Although legal provision is made for people who pass away without writing a will, the laws around “intestacy” are complex, and can lead to months of anxiety for family members. Contact Direct Will Trusts today, and we can help you take the first steps to stopping that anxiety.

Choosing To Write A Will

Making a will something some of us do not want to think about; however, if you do not take the time to fill in a will then your worldly possessions will be distributed according to a law dating back to 1925. Under this law you are not always assured that your spouse or civil partner will inherit your property – you simply cannot leave this to chance.

Making a Will ensures that your affairs, after your passing, will not have to sorted out by those saddening and distraught by your passing. Making a will is a more constructive and cheaper option. Anyone can make a will, from the elderly to very small children and it is something every individual should consider. But, it is something we rarely get down to. A Will is something you need to do now in order to safeguard your property and the possessions you have worked to hard to get.

Our Will writers deliver a personalised and efficient service to our clients.

Wills- An Outline

A Will is a legal document where you name one or more recipients, who will keep your affairs in order after you’ve passed away. Furthermore, it sets out who is entitled to your property and you possessions after death.

A will can establish:

Who will take care of your children
– Gifts given to family, friends and charities
– Funeral requests
– A trust fund to take hold of any assets once your children reach a given age

In order to write a will there are a few rules that must be adhered to:

– Made by a person who is 18 years of age or over (unless mitigating circumstances dictate the contrary)
– A Will is made voluntarily and is not a forced action brought about be anther person
– It is made by a person who has all of the mental capacities intact
– Must be made in writing
– It must be properly signed by the person making the Will in the presence of two chosen witnesses
