Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
If you send me a copy of the Will by an attachment, I will gladly look at it for you.
Hi - thanks for reply. Hope this image has attached ok.
The important thing in the will is that (due to my personal debts) I do not wish to inherit but have a lifetime gift of the property, and after my death for that property to pass to a local charity or association (yet to be finalised).
Also, some provisions in the will need to be updated
andrew is my mother's nephew, sally is my ex-partner (need to change this bequest).
no present insolvency proceedings, but owe Halifax largish amount due to house repossession about 20 years ago, debt now court order. so insolvency/bankruptcy always possibility.
+ Yes, I am Steven
Hi thanks for your answer. I want the will to absolutely bomb proof as regards ***** ***** possible future insolvency on my part. i.e. any legacy needs to be safe from attack.
In this respect, is your suggestion of me being a trustee of discretionary trust ok?
Can you tell me what terminology includes the STEP provisions - (is it just ".... include STEP provisions"?
Is it fine to have the trust become established only when it needs to be i.e. after death.
Alternatively, could the main bequest be to "xxxx charity" with me having lifetime interest. Could you give me a rough idea of how to phrase this, or tell me where I might find sample or template etc.
Finally, upon your suggestion of having will professionally drawn, could you do this?
Thanks for your time.
Thanks for comprehensive answer. Can you tell me if their is a fault with JustAnswer systems?
I asked my original question to you (as you assisted me once before) then "Aston Lawyer" answered, but it got to you eventually!
Your personal service good, but system confusing for users.....
Sorry, just one more question. If doing new DIY will, amended with your suggestions, can I simply replace "discretionary trust" with "protective trust"
Thank you for all your help. If you could suggest a law firm that would draft a suitable protective trust will by email, for us to sign & witness ourselves, that would be all.
Certainly. Which large town or city do you live near? Walthomstow?
