Single Will

Creating single wills that reflect your unique wishes and circumstances, ensuring clarity and control over your legacy.

What you Need to Know

A single will is a legal document that outlines how an individual’s assets and estate should be distributed after their passing. It is a fundamental part of estate planning and provides clarity and control over one’s legacy. 

At Tann Law Solicitors, we specialise in creating single wills that reflect your unique wishes and circumstances.

Why Choose a Single Will?

A single will is designed for individuals who wish to make specific provisions for the distribution of their assets and property. 

Here are some key reasons why you might choose a single will:

Control: A single will gives you complete control over how your estate is divided among your chosen beneficiaries. It ensures that your wishes are known and followed, providing peace of mind.

Customisation: You can tailor your single will to address your unique circumstances, such as naming specific beneficiaries, appointing guardians for minor children, and making provisions for loved ones.

Avoiding Intestacy: Dying without a valid will means your estate will be subject to intestacy laws, which may distribute your assets in a way you didn’t intend. A single will prevents this and ensures your estate is distributed according to your wishes.

Tax Efficiency: Proper estate planning within your single will can help minimise the impact of inheritance tax, potentially saving your beneficiaries money.

Funeral Wishes: Your single will can include instructions for your funeral or memorial service, allowing you to express your preferences and relieve your loved ones of these decisions.

The Single Will Writing Process

Creating a single will involves several essential steps:

Taking Instructions: You’ll meet with a dedicated Tann Law Will Solicitor to discuss your estate, assets, and specific wishes. This initial consultation helps your solicitor understand your needs.

Drafting the Single Will: After gathering all necessary information, your solicitor will prepare a draft single will that accurately reflects your intentions.

Review and Finalisation: You’ll have the opportunity to review the draft single will, and any necessary adjustments will be made to ensure it aligns with your wishes.

Signing the Single Will: To be valid, your single will must be signed in compliance with legal requirements. Your solicitor will guide you through this process, ensuring all formalities are met.

Storage: Your original single will should be stored in a secure location, such as a fire-proof safe at your solicitor’s office or another designated location. Copies should also be kept in accessible places for your beneficiaries and executors.
