Wrigleys are here to advise on the perfect Will for you

It is important to choose a Will which best suits your circumstances and wishes. 

Regardless of the type of Will, it should ensure complete peace of mind and provide certainty for those administering it. We are experienced wills solicitors based in Leeds and Sheffield and can help in all disputed cases.

Below is a guide to some of the main formats to consider.

Standard Wills

The following Wills are a straightforward way to deal with gifts to family, friends and/or charities or good causes:

  • Single Will – designed for one person.

  • Mirror Will – for couples with similar wishes.

  • Trust Wills – trusts can offer greater protection over assets, particularly if property, substantial assets or vulnerable people are involved.

Living Wills          

Living Wills are for adults over 18 who may become unable to communicate their own decisions about healthcare due to their medical condition. Also known as Advance Decisions or Advance Directives, each case is different, though as experienced Wills solicitors Wrigleys have the expertise and experience to advise you of the options.

Specialist Wills

Examples of specialists wills for more complex situations are as follows:

  • Disability Wills – to protect the interests of vulnerable people, for example involving disabled trusts. More details are available here.

  • Asset Protection Wills – to protect your estate from third parties including care fee planning and complex family arrangements. More details about asset protection generally are available here.

  • Literary Estate Planning Service to secure and protect a literary estate.

  • Intellectual Property Estate Planning Service to secure and protect an intellectual property related asset, for example copyright, performance rights, patents, trademarks, design rights, registered designs and artists resale rights.
