Married couples often opt for mutual and joint will to secure their property and assets. It ensures that the terms on their wills are both identical and their is no confusion in the event that one or both of them passes on. Joint and mutual will are very different however. A joint will
is a single document created but partners in the marriage that allocates assets to each other if one of them passes. It requires the consent of both parties in order to be cancelled. A mutual will
are two separate wills that can be made by married couples or any partners. They contain reciprocal arrangements that allocate assets to the other partner but each will is owned solely by the proprietor of that will.
