A Mutual Will is a Will that is intended to be irrevocable.
They are useful in situations where an agreement is made by more two people to leave their estate to an agreed beneficiary once they have both died.
An example of this is when a couple who have children from previous marriages want to ensure that their own children inherit their estate or part of their estate should they die first in the relationship. This can avoid a situation where one person's assets pass to their spouse who then changes their Will, disinheriting the children of the first to die.
