3 things that make us different
✓ Home Visits
We specialise in home visits typically at teatime or in the early evening. We satisfy ourselves then that you are not under duress or unduly influenced by another. We can ensure that the Will we draft is for the person we meet - not someone else.
✓ Official Will Storage
We recommend Wills are deposited with the Probate Service; they provide a Certificate of Deposit and currently charge £20 as a one off fee. The Probate Service is part of the Law Court that deals with your estate when you die. It's best to take a copy (print and/or scan) before dispatch so you can refer to it without having to ask for it back and keep that with a list of your bank accounts and a summary of the significant property you possess.
Commercial Will storage - their end is to steer you and deduct charges from your estate in return for making the application for Probate after you die. Some charge an annual rather than a one off fee for Will Storage.....
✓ Appoint Professionals at the appropriate time
You just need your Will professionally drafted right now. Tell your personal (lay) representatives in your Will that they should obtain 3 quotes after you"ve died before appointing Professional Executors and/or Professional Trustees to support them. That way the costs incurred will be competitive and up to date. This should maximise the value of the residuary; the amount left after specific legacies have been addressed.
