Your will should reflect your intentions
Your Trust speaks whilst you are alive and is usually an open document that doesn’t provide any clarity. This is deliberate so as to provide the widest possible scope for future actions which currently are not clear. After all, life changes, sometime dramatically and quickly and your Trust must be able to cope with and cater for such changes. Whilst you are alive you are able to determine and direct appropriate courses of action for your Trust for the benefit of the beneficiaries but of course after death, it is your Will that will be a driver in underpinning your estate and succession plans. Therefore it is important that firstly you have a current Will and secondly that it is up to date and reflects your intentions for both your estate and your Trust.
