Wills

We take instructions and prepare wills that realise your intentions and mitigate the effects of inheritance tax on your estate. If a person dies intestate (without leaving a will) financial affairs can be chaotic and more complex than necessary.

Possessions will not automatically pass to the next of kin, and there are rules that limit how much family members can inherit. All close family members may have to be traced which leads to long delays, expenses and hardship for the immediate family.

Will making is an important and respectable method of efficient legally compliant tax planning, however for complex wills we may advice that you involve a tax accountant or financial adviser.

Our service covers advice and drafting of:

  • Simple Wills
  • Complex Wills
  • Living Wills
  • Revocation of Wills
  • Storage of Will
  • Registration of Wills
  • Notification of Wills

Our legal service of drafting of a simple Will for you will cost you a fee of £500.

To draft your Will, we will charge £300.

To take your instructions in a meeting that may last between one and two hours, we will charge £200.

The meeting at which we take your instructions is called a consultation meeting and we will use the opportunity to thoroughly advice you on the main legal issues involved in making a valid Last Will & Testament.

Please note:

If your affairs are complicated, involving possibly in the use of Trusts to mitigate inheritance tax, or involving a wide range of different assets that need to be treated differently, our fees would be more.

We are happy to advise you of more detailed costs once we have all the information, we need to assess how complex the structure of your will & trust(s) should be.

Also, if your affairs require complex trusts or tax planning, we may recommend that you seek the services of an independent financial advisor with specialisation in inheritance tax planning.

The input of a specialist tax accountant may be useful for some estates.
