Wills and Probates
An important document, a will makes sure your wishes are carried out when it comes to the division and organisation of your assets. The process of creating a will includes drawing up a list of your assets and debts, deciding how you want to divide your estate, choosing an executor or executors and contacting a solicitor who specialises in wills.
It is important to note that you must have the mental capacity at the time you make a will. If you have a serious illness or if you have been diagnosed with dementia, you can still make a will if you can prove that you understand the contents of the will and what you are signing – this is something that your solicitors can make sure that the process is right and legitimate.
Following a death, the executor(s) for the deceased will need to get a Grant of Probate, an official document allowing the executor(s) to deal with the deceased’s estate. If you’re an executor, you can apply for this grant directly or getting help from a solicitor.
