For many people, writing a Will has always been at the back of their minds, but for some, the current situation has brought home the importance of finally getting it done. We are here for you and will do our upmost to make the process as easy as we can, offering guidance and support if you need it.

Over the last few months we have adapted our service and can now offer the initial appointment over the telephone or video call from the comfort of your home.  We can then either offer you a covid secure appointment in one offices to sign the will, or we can come to your house for a contact free garden signing appointment. We are committed to ensuring that you have a valid Will that meets your circumstances, so we will discuss with you the best way to achieve this in the current circumstances.

What to do next

Call us on 0344 659 9046 to book an appointment

Or if you prefer email us

An appointment will be arranged to speak to our experienced legal team.

 

Additional useful information

  • Download your Will questionnaire before the appointment. This is not compulsory as we will go through this with you at your appointment, however sometimes it can help to be prepared ahead of time.
  • Email us your completed form ahead of your telephone appointment.
  • At the end of your telephone appointment we will have all the information we need to write up a draft Will, which we will send to you for checking. Once you are happy, we complete the final version and arrange with you how we will go about signing and witnessing your Will.   
  • The process should take no longer than 10 working days.

For your safety we need to know that you are calling under your own free will and are under no duress or pressure from a third party to write the Will. Please do not be offended if during the call we ask a series of questions to confirm this.

Proposed increase on probate fees scrapped

Following the announcement of the snap general election to take place on 8th June, the government has decided to scrap its plans to increase the legal fees due after a person has died. Having proposed a rise in probate fees in England and Wales to come into effect in May, which would have seen an increase from the current flat figures of £155 or £215 to as much as £20,000 for the most valuable estates, the Ministry of Justice announced in the second half of April that there was too little time for the legislation to go through parliament before the election.
