With WillScript, you have a choice of making two single wills or a joint mirror will.
  
These are some of the things you may wish to consider:

 

Guardians -

If you have minor children living with you maybe from a previous relationship, you may wish to appoint your partner as guardian in case your child’s other parent does not survive you.

 

 

Executors -

To act with your partner if you own a property or land.

 

 

Property Trust -

If you want to secure your share of the property for the benefit of your family to stop them being disinherited after you die (see Property Trust).

   
Civil Partnerships - If you have entered into a civil partnership, you have the same taxation rights as married couples (See Inheritance Tax).
Please note that any existing will is revoked upon entering into a civil partnership unless it states that it was made in anticipation of your civil partnership.
 

 

Joint Tenancy Severance -

If you own your property as joint tenants in equity and wish to include the above trust in your will (see Property Trust).

 

 

Specific Gifts -

Are there any heirlooms you wish to gift?

 

 

Distribution of your

residual estate -

Who is to inherit your estate if your partner does not survive you?

 

 

 

Funeral Arrangements -

Do you wish to be buried or cremated? Any special arrangements?

 

 

 

 

Lasting Power of Attorney -

A simple accident or illness at any age may be all it takes to leave a person totally dependent on others. A Lasting Power of Attorney document therefore is as important as your will document. You have to be of sound mind when you instruct your Lasting Power of Attorney – don’t wait until it’s too late. See more information here.

 

 

Document storage -

Storing your will document safely.

 

 

Cohabit agreement -

An agreement by which two people agree terms under which they will live together.
