1. You can hire an estate planning lawyer. This is the typical technique, and it gives you the advantage of addressing specific legal intricacies with your scenario. If you have a complicated plan for distributing your estate, the solicitor may be able to write special terms for you. It is beneficial for conditional bequests, in which a particular occurrence may activate a specific distribution plan.
A solicitor, on the other hand, has some drawbacks. It is costly and inconvenient not only to draught the Will but also to amend it. As a result, some solicitors’ Wills are less complex than others because they aim to cover all possible situations, knowing that they must “future-proof” the document. Instead of establishing trusts and appointing guardians for specific children, the Will typically refers to the children who will be alive at my death. Attorneys will also generally name themselves as Executor in the Will (a highly profitable side business to Will drafting that will cost your beneficiaries roughly 5% of the whole value of your inheritance.
2. The second way is to write your own Will or to use a blank form will kit. This is the cheapest approach to preparing your Will, but it is also the most complex. Most known problems with do-it-yourself Wills stem from blank form kits, which ask far too much of the person utilizing the kit. For example, there could be an empty page requesting you to list the “powers of the Executor,” which is nearly complicated for any layperson.
The blank kits cannot include properly worded trusts or alternate plans, and they frequently need to have a residual clause, which is a must for any well-drafted Will. One of the most common mistakes is for people to name all of their possessions in their Will, not realizing that their possessions change over time and that a Will should not be amended manually with pen marks after it has been signed. These Wills are generally exceedingly poor and frequently need to be fixed.
