Wills & Trusts Solicitors Edinburgh, Scotland

  Boyd Certificate

The creation of a Will is vital to ensure that our wishes are communicated and respected when we are no longer here. If we die without a Will, what we leave behind will be distributed according to strict legal rules that are unlikely to align with what we intended. A Will can also substantially minimise the risk of costly legal disputes from arising between those we leave behind, helping to avoid additional stress during what is likely to be a difficult time.

What needs to be included in a Will?

A Will must be properly drafted if our final wishes are to be effectively communicated and complex legal problems avoided in the future. Not only must a Will meet specific legal requirements for it to be valid, it must also accurately and comprehensively reflect our personal circumstances. A Will must take into account all our property, the legal rules that could result in the terms of a Will being overturned (such as those relating to the prior and legal rights of spouses and dependants) and the possible circumstances that could impact how our wishes will be carried out when we’re no longer here.

Do I need a lawyer to write a Will?

Legal supervision is invaluable for making sure your Will meets all the legal requirements and communicates your wishes effectively. Our solicitors are expert Will drafters and reviewers. We will make sure that your Will is not only legally valid, but also fully comprehensive, so that your final wishes are effectively communicated and capable of being respected.

Trusts

When estate planning, a Trust is a very useful way of ensuring your assets will be used for a specified purpose and properly managed on behalf of those you want to benefit from them. It allows you to transfer your assets to trustees of your choice, who will be responsible for making sure the property is used in the way you intend, such as for contributing to the education of future generations, supporting a family member or to benefit a particular charity or charitable purpose.

What are the benefits of setting up a Trust in Scotland?

When making plans for getting the most out of your assets, Trusts are advantageous for a number of reasons:

  • Your assets will be passed on to the next generation or used for a specified purpose
  • Your assets will be managed in a way that is in the best interests of those you want to benefit from them
  • Trusts are tax-efficient, flexible and can help protect your assets, including money, property and investments
