Essential considerations when writing a Will
When it comes time to draft your will, there are a few essential things to consider:
- Who will manage your estate? The executor plays a critical role in making sure your assets are transferred properly and everything is accounted for.
- Who will receive your assets? Passing on your assets to particular people is the essence of what you’re doing with a will. It is important to carefully consider who gets what assets.
- How will you pass on your assets to make sure the beneficiaries are good stewards of the property you leave them? It is important to consider not only who gets the assets, but how they will get them. There are numerous trust instruments available to help you better control the timing and purposes of the transfers.
These are just a few of the important considerations when writing a will. Speak with an experienced attorney who will go through all the details with you to make sure your comprehensive estate plan will be effective.
