'The Will process was explained very well and I was very satisfied with the service I received. I did appreciate the home visit as I do not drive.' Mrs L. of Lincoln, December 2010
When you are thinking of writing a Will, it is essential that you know what information you will need to include to make the process as quick and easy as possible for you and your Solicitor. The information below is designed to help you understand exactly what details you will need to supply.
Executors carry out the instructions in your Will. If your arrangements are simple, one executor will suffice, but it is a good idea to name two. If a child or trusts are involved, two executors are essential. Your executors can be relatives, friends or you can appoint Dale & Co. You should ask the person you wish to appoint as an executor before naming them in your Will, it is a serious obligation. Executors can be a beneficiary but cannot witness your Will.
If you have children under the age of 18, you may wish to choose a guardian to take parental responsibility
Ensure your loved ones are aware of your specific wishes. It may be uncomfortable thinking about these things now but it will make it easier for family and friends.
Would you prefer to be buried or cremated?
Before writing your Will it is important to know exactly who you would like to benefit from it, these people are called Beneficiaries.
It is a good idea to name alternative beneficiaries in case a beneficiary dies before you.
Once you have decided on Beneficiaries, you can proceed to decide what you would like to leave to them.
After legacies, taxes, funeral expenses etc have been paid, what is left is the Residuary Estate.
Who would you like to receive your Residuary Estate?
