Single WILL

A single will is a legally binding document for one person. Within the document, you can record wishes like who will administer your estate when you pass away and who will arrange your funeral. Other wishes include who you want to give your money and property too and who will look after your children if you pass away before they reach 18.

MIRROR WILL

A mirror will is no different to a single will but it is produced for two people, a married couple or co-habiting partners for example. It is likely that these two people will have the same wishes, hence the term 'mirror'. A mirror will is normally more expensive than a single will but you normally receive a discount when preparing two wills opposed to one.

What happens if I die without a Will?

If you die without a valid Will, you will have died 'intestate'. Specific laws will then dictate what will happen to your estate. This could mean that your spouse, partner or children lose out with some or all of your estate passing to those you may not have chosen.

FAQ

Who can witness my Will?

A witness should not be anyone who will benefit out of the Will. You should avoid using a spouse or partner of a beneficiary too. 

The responsibility of a witness is to ensure the Will is signed by you, the testator (the person making the Will) and you are doing so on your own accord.

What is a Guardian?

A guardian is someone you appoint in your Will to look after your child/children if something happens to you before they reach 18. 

If you don't appoint a guardian, it is the responsibility of the courts to find someone suitable to care for them. The decision they make may not be what you would have chosen.

What is an Executor?

An executor is a person nominated by you, typically a family member, friend or a professional person whose responsibility it is to deal with the administration of your estate. 

Typical duties include locating your Will, valuing your assets, insuring them and paying off any debts you may have. Finally, they will administer the total sum of your estate to your beneficiaries.
