The increase in people choosing to live together prior to marriage and after a previous divorce or separation necessitates rethinking traditional estate planning using spouse reliefs and leaves many difficult family problems.
Whilst the size of a person’s estate will dictate the ability of the proposed testator to cater for all those who might have an interest in his/her estate the choice of express trusts needs to be clearly explained and the possibility of claims evaluated.
The aim of this webinar is to provide the practitioner with reminders and ideas relating to the drafting of Wills for cohabitants in the context of our legal system and tax system.
Participants will be able to:
- Advise cohabitant clients correctly in the making of their Wills
- The relevant legal framework
- Use of Trusts
- Impact of Taxation
- Will Drafting considerations
