Any one help with info/advice on getting a legal Will written? How much it cost,recommended solicitor,things i would need to do etc. Many thanks.
On my fourth Will. Always use Percy Hughes and Roberts at Hamilton Square.This Firm has always been most professional and I found their charges reasonable.This advice is without prejudice, so I cannot be responsible if you experience otherwise.
A Simple Will won't cost that much.Phone them for a quote. I always go for advice as they come up with things that would not cross your mind.
Have always had a Simple Trust put in each Will that my children receive on their twenty fifth bithdays if I died, not younger except for education purposes.Both are sensible and now in their thirties.
I have been Enduring Power of Attorney and Executor for my Uncle, and PHR have also dealt with my own POA and both my Divorces.
Have always appointed one of their Solicitors to be one of the Executors just as my Dad did with his Will, as it facilitates a smoother way to distribution of the Estate .
Apparently it is much cheaper for Solicitor than using a Bank.
Will may cost say £70 but I have been told some Will Making Companies and Free Wills cause problems.
Doing a your own Home Will I think a complete no no as incorrect wording or omissions can cause disaster.
For example if a Beneficiary cannot be traced it might be years before the others get any monies. A time limit for claiming of say two years after death to claim on the Estate for some people would be beneficial, but if like myself you are not legally trained,important matters could be overlooked
