Assignment of beneficial interest in an asset (AS001)

This document will allow the owner of a beneficial interest in property or other asset, and who may or may not also be the legal owner, to transfer that interest to one or more people. A person has a beneficial interest in an asset if they are entitled to the benefit and enjoyment of that asset and thus an asset may be legally held by and in the name of one person on behalf of and for the benefit of another. The person holding the property has a legal interest in the asset; the person for whose benefit the asset is held has a beneficial interest in the asset. The transfer may be by gift or for money. It can be used for any type of asset, such as a house or flat, a bank account or a painting or car. Please note that this document cannot be used to deal with legal interests in property or other assets.

Consumer - flight claims

EU flight compensation and refund claim (CR001)

Where an airline flight is cancelled, delayed, diverted or over-booked or a seat is downgraded, the passenger can be entitled to compensation of up to €600 IN ADDITION TO a refund or alternative flight. Airlines are also obliged to pay for adequate 'care' for such passengers. While the legal rules are complex you can use this process to draft your complaint by simply answering the questions asked. If you have a valid case LawOnline will generate a claim appropriate to your circumstances. If the airline is licenced in the Republic of Ireland and refuses to pay you can then make your claim through the District Court, using the small claims or normal claims procedure depending on the amount. See the LawOnline document processes: 'Application to the small claims registrar' (DR014) and 'Claim notice: debt claim not exceeding 15000 euros' (DR016). If the airline is licenced in another EU member state you can use the 'European small claims procedure' (DR015).

Debt - other

Acknowledgement of debt (DT002)

When signed, this document will acknowledge the debt that is owed - either by an individual, company or partnership - to another, the reason why the debt arose and the amount owed. This serves two very important purposes: 1. It makes it easier to prove the existence of a debt if it is later disputed. 2. It can interrupt or suspend the effect of the Statute of Limitations Act 1957 which causes a debt to become unenforceable after six years. This document can have the effect of restarting the clock and making the limitation period start afresh, although it will not have this effect if the acknowledgement is made after the limitation period has already expired or if the acknowledgement is not made to the person to whom the debt is owed (or his/her agent).

Ordinary civil bill and indorsement of claim (DR020)

Use this document to make an application via the Circuit Court to recover money owed to you for goods and/or services provided or for other reasons. Interest, where appropriate, can also be claimed as well as recovery costs. When you give this civil bill to the debtor this is all that you need to do to start the legal process. Before making this application, you should ideally have already sent at least one letter to the debtor demanding payment and indicating the possibility of initiating legal proceedings if the outstanding debt is not paid. If you have not done this already, you can use the LawOnline document 'Debt collection letters for unpaid invoices' (DR008) amongst others. Please note that the Circuit Court deals only with debts between €15,001 and €75,000 in value. If the debtor fails to respond to this civil bill and fails to fully settle the outstanding amount claimed you can then proceed to apply for a court judgment that the money is owed (the documents required to apply for judgment are also available on LawOnline).

These documents and the others required to secure a judgment against a debtor in the Circuit Court, together referred to as the 'judgment set', are all available on LawOnline.

The District Court small claims process is specifically designed so that you do not need to hire a solicitor or lawyer. You can use this document to make an application to the Small Claims Registrar in the District Court to recover money you are claiming is owed to you for faulty goods which you bought or for inadequate services provided to you, minor damage to property or the non-return of a rent deposit on certain kinds of rented properties. There is a limit of up to €2,000 on the amount that can be claimed under this procedure in the District Court. A copy of the completed application form will be sent by the registrar to the person or business against whom you are making the claim, called the respondent, seeking payment of the amount owed.

Claim notice - debt claim not exceeding 15,000 euros (DR016)

Use this document to make a claim, via the District Court, to recover money owed to you (up to €15,000) for goods and/or services provided, for example, or to make a claim for other reasons such as for liquidated damages. Interest can also be claimed on the outstanding amount where relevant as well as recovery costs. When you give this notice to the debtor this is all that is required of you to start the legal process. If the debtor fails to respond to this notice and fails to fully settle the outstanding amount claimed you can then proceed to apply for a court judgment that the money is owed (the documents required to apply for judgment are also available on LawOnline). Before making this application, you should ideally have already sent at least one letter to the debtor demanding payment and threatening to take the matter to court if the outstanding debt is not paid. If you have not done this already, you can use LawOnline documents such as 'Debt collection letters for unpaid invoices' (DR008) amongst others.

European small claims procedure (DR015)

You can use this document to claim for money owed to you by a individual or business (the defendant) located in another EU country (Member State). Depending on the details the claim is sent either to a court in your own country or to a court in the Member State where the defendant is located. This process is called the European Small Claims Procedure (ESCP). The limit on claims is €2,000, but this excludes any interest due or other related costs that you may wish to also claim. The claim can be either for money owed or for other reasons, e.g. to force the defendent to deliver goods already paid for or some other similar obligation, or to prevent a legal wrong such as trespass etc. The ESCP is intended to be a written process with no need for either party to attend court. It is also designed so that a claim can be made without the need to hire a solicitor or lawyer, thus saving on costs. This LawOnline process is only suitable where both claimant and defendant are located within the EU.

Debt recovery - reminder letters

Debt collection letters for unpaid invoices (DR008)

Use this document to create two letters demanding payment for an overdue invoice (or invoices). The first letter is an initial letter demanding payment for an overdue invoice and can be sent as a 'gentle' reminder. If there is no response and you are considering beginning legal proceedings it is normal practise, though not a legal requirement, to send a letter to the debtor giving seven days for a response with payment before proceeding. The second letter is to be used for this purpose and if payment is still not made you can then take your claim to court using documents also available on LawOnline - the specific documents required will depend on whether the District or Circuit Court is used.

Letter before legal action following earlier correspondence (DR010)

Use this document to create a final letter of demand, following previous unanswered correspondence, before considering taking court action with respect to a claim that you have made for liquidated damages or for an outstanding debt.

Without sending this letter, and if you decide to initiate legal proceedings, the court may find that you have acted unreasonably and may penalise you by disallowing or reducing the costs or interest that you might otherwise have been entitled to. Please note that you cannot use this letter if your claim relates to a personal injury you have suffered.

Family - living together

Cohabitation agreement (FL001)

Cohabitants, depending on the length of their cohabitation and whether or not they have a child, can have similar rights to those of a married person should their relationship end. You can use this document to create a cohabitation agreement to protect the interests of a cohabiting couple in an intimate relationship who are not married to each other or in a registered civil partnership and are either already living together or plan to live together in a home that they are renting or which is owned by one or both parties. This document will regulate the financial interests of the couple during the relationship and, upon termination (should their relationship come to an end), deal with common issues such as the division of joint assets, the mutual home and joint bank accounts etc. A cohabitants’ agreement is legally valid only if the cohabitants have each received independent legal advice or have received legal advice together and have waived the right to independent legal advice, the agreement is in writing and signed by both cohabitants, and the general law of contract is complied with.

Prenuptial/Pre-civil partnership agreement (FL002)

Use this document to state what should happen to assets should your marriage or civil partnership end. Although prenuptial/pre-civil partnership agreements are not legally enforceable in the Republic of Ireland, a court may have regard to such an agreement as a record of the wishes of the parties where both have taken legal advice on the contents of the agreement prior to signing it. These agreements also carry more weight since the judgment in the UK Supreme Court case of Radmacher vs Granatino. This is because they are no longer seen as 'contrary to public policy' in the UK, i.e. no longer seen as a perversion of justice or harmful to the State and the public. Courts in the Republic of Ireland may therefore have recourse or give effect to such agreements, particularly given the existence of consent, when deciding on settlements.

This document creates an agreement, called a 'licence', to be used by the owner of a house, apartment or flat who wishes to take on a lodger to occupy part of the house or apartment with them.

Motoring

Agreement for the sale of a motor vehicle (MT001)

Use this document to draw up an agreement for the private sale of a motor vehicle between individuals, where the purchase price is received in full by a single payment and not by instalments, and the vehicle is not subject to a loan or charge against it. In this document, the buyer is purchasing the vehicle 'as seen', thereby protecting the seller from any claims relating to faults or defects found subsequently. In turn, the seller confirms that the kilometer or mileage reading is accurate and that there are no outstanding charges on the vehicle. Without this agreement the seller is taking a risk that the buyer could later allege that the seller had orally represented the vehicle being in a better condition than it was. This document is not suitable if either the seller or the buyer is under 18.

Powers of attorney

Enduring power of attorney (PA002)

An enduring power of attorney (EPA) is a legal document that enables a person (called the donor) to appoint one or more other people (called the attorney(s)) to manage their financial affairs and property, with restrictions if necessary, and also certain 'personal care' decisions if required, in the event that the donor becomes mentally incapable of doing so. This LawOnline process guides the donor through each step. EPAs are very powerful documents and it is important that you fully understand the implications of giving authority to other people for managing your affairs before you sign this document. An EPA can also be revoked if necessary - see the LawOnline document 'Revocation of enduring power of attorney' (PA004).

General power of attorney (PA001)

If you, or a company, need to have another person or persons, company or firm to manage your affairs or the affairs of the company for a limited period of time, a general power of attorney can be used to do so. An individual may want to use a general power of attorney for a number of reasons - for example, they might be leaving the country for a period of time and need someone else to manage their affairs while they are gone. The person whom you (the 'donor') appoint to manage your affairs is known as your 'attorney'. Your attorney will be able to do anything on your behalf which he/she can legally do as an attorney. The power of attorney may be specific in that it limits the appointed attorney to performing specific tasks or it can be general allowing the attorney to do almost anything that you yourself could do. This document is suitable for use by both individuals and companies.

Revocation of a general power of attorney (PA003)

Use this document to revoke a general or ordinary power of attorney that you, or a company, have previously granted to another person or persons.

The general power of attorney may normally be revoked at any time. While less common, some powers of attorney are stated to be irrevocable by the donor - it is important to ensure that the power of attorney you wish to revoke does not include such a condition.

An enduring power of attorney only becomes effective once it is registered with the Registrar of the Wards of Court. Once registered, however, it can only be revoked with permission of the High court.

Probate

Renunciation of administration (PB001)

When someone dies without a Will, his/her estate needs to be administered (that is the process of paying any debts, collecting assets and distributing them to those who are legally entitled). To administer the estate, those who are entitled must apply for 'letters of administration'. If you are entitled to make such an application, but you do not wish to be involved in the administration of the estate, you can use this document to renounce this right. Note that by renouncing your right to a grant, you will NOT affect any entitlement you may have to benefit from the estate; you are merely declining to become involved in the administration.

Renunciation of probate or administration with Will annexed (PB002)

If you have been appointed an executor in a Will and you do not want to act in this role, or if no executor has been appointed or, if appointed, will not or cannot act as such, and you are next in line entitled to act as executor, you can use this document to refuse your appointment. People often find, particularly after the death of a friend or relative, that they have been appointed an executor of his or her Will. They may have been unaware of the appointment and may not wish to take on the responsibility. In addition, even if they previously agreed to act as executor, they have an opportunity to change their minds. If a person does not want to act an as executor but wants to still retain the right to do so, they do not need to execute any form of document. This allows them the opportunity to come back into the administration of the estate at a later date if so desired. It is not final and is therefore more flexible compared with outright renunciation using this document.

Trusts

Declaration of trust relating to land (DE004)

Use this document if land, or property built on land, is held in the sole name of one person and it is intended to give rights in the land or property to another person but where a simple transfer of legal title to the property to that person may be inappropriate, e.g. where one person provides the money required to purchase the property but wishes to remain anonymous at the time of purchase. This document is not suitable for use where land or property is held in the names of more than one person.

Declaration of trust relating to land for one or two co-owners (DE005)

This document may be used where either one person holds property and wishes to declare a trust relating to its ownership or where two people hold property and wish to set out the way in which they own the property. While the document is intended for use primarily with real property, i.e. land and buildings, it may also be used for any other type of assets. The document allows the property to be held so that upon the death of the first owner, it passes either to the survivor or alternatively to one of their heirs.

Declaration of trust relating to personal property (DE001)

Use this document to create a trust in respect of personal property; i.e. property other than land, or property built on land (sometimes referred to as 'real' property). Personal property can include personal possessions (i.e. items that you can touch and move such as vehicles, furniture, boats, collectables, etc.) and intangible assets (i.e. items that you cannot touch such as the rights to the proceeds of an insurance policy or investment; the right to receive payment of a debt; intellectual property rights, etc.). Where there is more than one beneficiary, this document will enable you to provide that the property (or the relevant part of the property) will be given, or that the debt (or the relevant part of the debt) will be passed, to the beneficiaries either in equal shares between them or in specified percentage shares. This document is not suitable for use where the item of personal property is owned by more than one person.

Declaration of trust relating to shares (DE002)

This document allows a person, partnership or company (the nominee) to transfer their ownership in company shares to another (the beneficiary) while retaining the shares in their name. Where, for example, a company requires shareholders to fulfil certain criteria and the person to whom shares are to be given does not, this document will allow an individual or entity who fulfils these criteria to hold the shares on the latter's behalf. The person or entity who holds the shares in trust must act in accordance with the instructions of the person owning the shares, i.e. the beneficiary. This document is only suitable for company shares. There can be one or more beneficiaries.

Simple life interest trust (DE003)

This document creates a simple trust for the benefit of a single beneficiary and his or her family. The income of the trust fund is payable to the beneficiary (called the 'life tenant') for his or her lifetime. On the life tenant's death, the income is payable to the life tenant's widow or widower and thereafter both the capital and income of the trust fund are payable to the life tenant's children in equal shares. The trust property is placed in the hands of specifically named trustees. This arrangement provides the life tenant with financial assistance during their lifetime while ensuring that control is maintained over the ultimate disposal of the capital assets to other members of the family.

Wills - amending a Will

Codicil appointing substitute executor on death of executor (WL012)

If you would like to make some relatively simple and straightforward amendments or alterations to your Will, but you do not wish to create a new Will, you should use a codicil to do so. If an executor named in your Will dies, you can use this codicil to appoint another person to act in their place as an executor. In all other respects, your Will remains unchanged. It is important that your new executor be given the same type of appointment as the executor they are replacing. In your Will, that executor would have been appointed either solely as an executor or as an executor and trustee. Please note that this Will cannot be used if you already have five or more codicils to your Will, in which case we recommend that you draft a new Will instead.

In all other respects, your Will remains the same. Please note that you cannot use this codicil if you already have five or more codicils to your Will, in which case we recommend that you draft a new Will.

Codicil revoking a gift to a named beneficiary (WL007)

If you would like to make some relatively simple and straightforward amendments or alterations to your Will, but you do not wish to create a new Will, you should use a codicil to do so. This particular codicil will cancel a gift which you have left to a beneficiary in your Will. In all other aspects, your Will remains the same. In order to use this codicil, make sure that when read together with the codicil your Will makes a gift of your residuary estate (the remainder of your estate after everything else in your Will has been given away), otherwise what is called a partial intestacy may occur. Partial intestacy is where some, but not all, of a deceased's assets are given away. You cannot use this document if you already have five or more codicils to your existing Will (in which case, you should draft a new Will).

Codicil revoking gift to one and giving to another (WL013)

If you would like to make some relatively simple and straightforward amendments or alterations to your Will, but you do not wish to create a new Will, you should use a codicil to do so. If you wish to revoke a specific gift (e.g. a car, furniture) or pecuniary gift (i.e. money) given in your Will and give that same gift (or a different gift) to someone else, you can use this codicil to do so. This codicil will not change anything else in your Will. If, in this codicil, you choose to replace the original gift with a different gift, then the original gift will not be left to anyone. In this case make sure that your Will (as amended by this and any other codicil) makes a gift of your residuary estate, i.e. the remainder of your estate after everything else in your Will has been given away. Otherwise what is called a partial intestacy may occur. Partial intestacy is where some, but not all, of a deceased's assets are given away.Please note that this codicil is not appropriate for use if your current Will has more than five codicils to it.

Wills - making a Will

Comprehensive Will for a married person or civil partner (WL003)

This Will is suitable for anyone who is married or in a civil partnership where only one party needs to make a Will or where both parties wish to make a separate Will with differing wishes.

This Will allows you to make as many gifts of money or specific items as you wish to as many persons and organisations, such as Irish charities and amateur sports clubs, as you wish. You can leave the remainder of your estate after making any specific gifts (i.e. the residuary estate) either in equal shares or in varying percentages. You can also name your executors and, if required, their substitutes, appoint guardians for your children, make provisions for the care of pets and specify burial arrangements amongst other matters.

Letter of wishes (WL001)

A letter of wishes is an informal letter addressed to your executors or to the trustees of any trust created by your Will. It is used to tell them what you would like to happen following your death. Unlike your Will, the letter of wishes does not become publicly available when you die. It can be used to help or guide your executors or trustees on pretty much anything you wish. A letter of wishes can be a very useful document in assisting your executors, and you should therefore give serious thought to writing one, and updating it periodically. It may also serve as evidence to defend a claim, for example, by any dependants who challenge your Will on the grounds that you have not made proper provision for that child or children during their lifetime.

Mutual/Mirror Wills for married couples or civil partners (WL005)

This document creates two Wills either for a married couple or for two people in a civil partnership with each other. The Wills can be created as Mirror Wills or as Mutual Wills. Mirror Wills are Wills made by two people in substantially the same terms. Mutual Wills are Mirror Wills, but with one crucial additional feature, which is that Mutual Wills are based on an agreement that neither of the people making the Mutual Wills may later cancel or change their Will without the consent of the other person. These Wills allow you to make as many gifts of money or specific items as you wish to as many people and organisations, such as Irish charities and amateur sports clubs, as you wish. You can leave the remainder of your estate after making any gifts (i.e. the residuary estate) to as many persons you wish, either in equal shares or in varying percentages. You can also name your executors and, if required, their substitutes, appoint guardians for your children, make provisions for the care of pets and specify burial arrangements amongst other matters.
