Mirror wills explained
Mirror wills are two separate legal documents that are practically identical in almost every way, except for the name if the person and perhaps their individual funeral wishes.
A simple example of what a couple with children could write into their mirror wills is that each person leaves everything to the other, and whoever dies last leaves everything to the children in equal shares.
Will a mirror will work best for me?
Mirror wills are almost identical legal documents, so if each of you wants something different written into each will, it is better not to choose mirror wills. In this case, you would simply have two separate wills written, with each will specifying each person’s requirements.
Advantages of mirror wills
If you and your partner have similar wishes, mirror wills can be a more cost effective option than making separate single wills. From as little as £245 (including VAT) you and your spouse or partner could both set out legally what your wishes are.
If you die without a will in place England or Wales, this is called dying intestate. The rules of intestacy would then apply meaning that the law decides who inherit your estate. For example, who gets your property, car, financial assets, your possessions and even your pets.
If you die with no will and you have no living family members entitled under the rules of intestacy then the Crown will get everything.
