This section will not appear if you answered "Yes" to the first Beneficiaries question.
The interview will ask you “How do you want to leave property such as buildings or land?”
If you chose the first option, you will need to consider whether you want the property to pass outright to the named individual(s) or whether they are only to be entitled to it during their lifetime(s).
Either way, you will need to have the following details about the property:
If you are intending to leave a life interest, the Bequeathed will is only suitable if the beneficiary is not going to be a residuary beneficiary.
For more information, see our page Gifts in wills.
If you hold a property jointly with another person, you need to establish whether you hold it as joint tenants or tenants in common.
If you hold it as joint tenants, when you die your share automatically passes to the other person regardless of the provisions of your will. Therefore, to avoid a disappointed beneficiary, it is advisable not to leave a legacy of any property held as a joint tenant.
You can, however, leave a legacy of your share of a property which you own with someone else as tenants in common. Your share of the property will pass under your will. So if you currently hold a property as joint tenants, you may wish to consider severing the joint tenancy and holding the property as tenants in common if you wish to pass your share to someone via your will.
