What is an estate?
The term ‘estate’ refers to the character and duration of a person’s ownership of land, and all possessions and other assets they have a controlling interest in or own out-right, minus any liabilities. It is of particular significance if the individual is made bankrupt or when they die.
Estate planning is the process of managing an estate and deciding, through a will and testament, how it will be divided up and distributed to beneficiaries (those who receive the assets through inheritance, gift, and so on) upon their death. Solicitors can be hired to assist with the process of estate planning.
