These Wills are suitable for couples who are married or in a civil partnership and who both want to make a Will in reciprocal terms – i.e. you want the Wills to 'mirror' each other.
Mirror Wills are Wills made by two people in largely the same terms.
These Wills give everything to the survivor after the first of you dies, and then allow you to say what will happen after the second death, which is the same in both Wills. For example, you can specify who should inherit belongings and property, and how money should be distributed. You can also name a guardian for any children under the age of 18 and appoint up to four executors – people who will be responsible for implementing your instructions in your Will and for the administration of your estate.
To make things easier for you, buying this document provides one set of questions that creates two separate Wills, one for each partner.
A letter of wishes is an informal letter addressed to your executors or to the trustees of any trust created by your will. It is used to tell them what you would like to happen following your death. Unlike your will, the letter of wishes does not become publicly available when you die. It can be used to help or guide your executors or trustees on pretty much anything you wish. It does not interfere with or restrict the discretion of the executors or trustees in any way.
This document creates two wills for either a married couple or for two people in a civil partnership with each other. Mirror wills are wills made by two people in substantially the same terms. In these wills, the married couple/the civil partners provide for each other on the first death, and then say what is to happen on the event of the second death, which is the same in both wills.
These wills are suitable for use in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
