Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Your Will will set up any Trust- it would be normal for the Executors of your Will to be the Trustees, and this should possibly be 2 of your children, if they get on fine with your Partner!
As regards ***** ***** itself, I am guessing that your Solicitor is suggesting that if you were to go first, that your partner be entitled to remain living in the house for as long as he wishes, subject to him paying the outgoings/maintaining the property. Alternatively, depending on how you feel, a simple trust could be set up in the Will to say that if you were to go first, the house be sold and the proceeds split between your Partner and your children. Whether this would give your Partner enough captal to puurchase another pproeprty is something you would need to consider.
On a side issue, I certainly wouldn't hand over any money to your Solicitor until the Wills have been prepared (it would not be normal for a client to pay upfront for a Will).
I hope this assists you and answers your question.
Please let me now if you require any further clarification.
