DIY Will Drafting and Digital Assets – what can go wrong? | STEP East Midlands

Produced in collaboration with STEP East Midlands.

The current pandemic has brought an increase in the number of people making wills, many of them homemade. However, many of these Wills can be badly drafted and fail to deal with all the assets that a person has, particularly their digital assets. 

Debra Burton and Ashley Blood-Halvorsen, a specialist contentious probate and estates Barrister at 3 Paper Buildings, discuss the common problems encountered with badly drafted Wills including: 

Construction issues
The risk of full/partial intestacy
Validity concerns
Unintended IHT consequences
 
The risk of litigation
The risk of unclaimed assets, and how this can impact on the estate administration

Wills, protecting your wealth and family matters

Wills, protecting your wealth and family matters

COVID-19 has impacted everyone’s lives in some way - these are challenging times and it’s brought out the best and the worst of situations.  It has been also a time to reflect and put in place arrangements for families having relationship difficulties and those who have sadly suffered a bereavement, but also for those who've had more time to reflect on making provisions for loved ones after their death.

In this webinar, our team of Wills and Family law experts we will answer some of the common Family and Wills issues we are seeing including the “no fault” divorce and child arrangements, wills and broader tax planning, preventative measures to avoid probate disputes and what to do should there be a claim made against your estate.

Along with answering your questions:

  • When do “no fault” divorces come into force and how will these be different from the current system?
  • Why do I need to make a Will and what can I do to avoid a will dispute after I die?
  • When do “no fault” divorces come into force?
  • What do the courts look at when deciding custody?

If you have any questions or want to find out more about how we could help you with Wills or any family law matters contact us today for a free confidential consultation.
