Mind at Rest Wills New Online Wills Service – Press Release
Ipswich — 15/07/2015 — Today, Mind at Rest Wills are very pleased to announce the immediate availability of its new Make a Will Online Service which allows people with the need for a Basic Will to create and download their legal Last Will & Testament Documents (Valid in England & Wales) online in minutes.
Whether you have already made your Will or are planning to make a Will for the first time when it comes to getting Married few people are aware that in England and Wales the act of Marriage automatically revokes a Last Will & Testament made prior to the Marriage.
In England & Wales, the only exception to this rule is if the Will has been written before the Marriage occurs containing a specific clause that covers the contemplation of your upcoming Marriage.
The role of an Executor of a Will is to carry out the instructions and wishes written in a deceased persons Will.
The role of a Trustee is to take care of the managing of any funds from the deceased Estate that was not to be distributed immediately, for example, monies held Upon Trust.
Whilst it is possible to appoint separate Executors and Trustees in a Will, nowadays in the majority of standard Wills (those that do not contain Will Trusts), the Executors and Trustees duties are carried out by the same person.
When someone dies in England or Wales the death must be registered with the Registrar of Births and Deaths.
If the person’s death has been referred to the coroner you will not be able to register their death until the registrar has received the coroner’s
permission to do so.
If the person’s death has not been referred to the coroner then you should contact the registrar as soon as possible to inform them. The death must be registered within 5 days unless the registrar gives permission to extend this time period.
One of the questions I am often asked by clients is, can a Will made in the UK cover properties they own Overseas / Abroad?
Until now I have always advised clients to make a separate Will in the country their property is located. This is because different countries have different succession laws often known as Forced Heirs Rules.
One of the first things that needs to be decided when making a Will is who you would like to appoint as your Executors.
Executors are the people you choose to carry out the wishes you have for the distribution of your estate, once you die.
Depending on the size of your estate there will be a number of duties that your Executors are required to carry out in order to legally fulfil their obligations.
