Variations of a Will

Dying is not something people like to think about and this can often mean that a deceased's affairs were not in order on the date of their death. Once a person has passed away the responsibility to deal with their affairs passes on to someone else. If you are that person there are many issues which need to be addressed. Our Wills Probate and Trusts team can help you make sense of the issues you need to address and give you advice on the best way to do this.

What happens if the deceased left a Will which leaves everything to someone who doesn't want or need the inheritance?

What if the beneficiary wants to give their inheritance to someone else - can they do this?

What if the result of the deceased's death is a large tax bill that could have been avoided with better tax planning?

A Deed of Variation

A Deed of Variation (sometimes called a Deed of Family Arrangement) is a document which enables a Will (or even an Intestacy) to be varied in certain circumstances. This can be a fantastic way of ensuring that everyone's wishes are met and unforeseen circumstances are avoided.

However, there are strict rules as to when a Deed of Variation will work and it must be entered into with 2 years of the deceased's death so it is essential to take professional advice on any variations of Wills before anything is done.
