WILLS, PROBATE & ESTATE ADMINISTRATION
We would advise and draft your Will ( including where necessary Trusts which can take several different types of will trusts which may form part of your will. These could include:
Life interest trusts, where a beneficiary may live in a property owned by the trust, or receive income from it.
Flexible life interest trusts, where trustees are given the power to take capital from the trust during their lifetime.
Discretionary trusts can be more flexible by allowing appointed Trustees to manage your estate and decide who to distribute it out to and when.
Bereaved minor trusts can be set up for the child to inherit only when they turn 18, and similarly, an 18-25 trust delays the age a child can inherit).
