Types of wills

We offer our clients a range of wills to suit their needs.

There are three types of wills:

Standard will This includes the appointment of executors, the gifting of the whole estate after payment of debts, taxes and funeral expenses, to a group or individuals within a substitute group. It also includes directions concerning funeral arrangements.
Tailored will The same as a standard will, but with provisions for the appointment of guardians and trustees. You can declare specific gifts to individuals, provisions for children or grandchildren to inherit unequally and set up of a trust.
Complex will The same as a standard will set out in the tailored will, however, it can include life provisions in the family home, step-children/children to inherit in disproportionate percentages, Inheritance Tax mitigation and several individual gifts of items, property or money. It will also include instances where an individual, like a long-term partner or child, is excluded from a will or complex family structures.

A mirror or joint will is one where the content of the two wills is the same, except for the name of the testator. Mirror wills are designed for married or co-habiting partners who need identical wills.
