What are your hours for appointments?
We will generally come out in the evenings, as well as during the day. The meeting will last approximately an hour.
How much will it cost me?
Here is our leaflet Schedule of Fees.
Surely its cheaper to do this using an internet service?
It also sounds logical that this is something the internet can do easily. Sorry to disappoint but we have tried them, the process on offer is not good sadly. Remember we are dealing with your life’s work here. As such without any additional checking involved you run the risk of creating an invalid Will or one that creates significant problems. Often it is our clients telling us horror stories regarding these Wills, not the other way round.
I am thinking of using a W H Smith Will kit?
There really is a lot of reading and study involved to read the notes and the net result is often that it ends up in a drawer not done. I have spoken to many people about this and there is always a nagging feeling that they haven’t got it right. Solicitors love Will kits because they are involved in sorting out the problems that they can create at the end of the day, some of which can go to the High Court. A good deal more expensive and acrimonious than doing it correctly in the first place.
Do I need to prepare a list of specific items to go to certain people?
Here is our leaflet we send you before a meeting, suggesting what you need to do.
What if I already have a Will?
We offer a free Will checking service whereby the existing Will can be checked for validity and if the Will is not meeting your needs or is invalid we can let you know. If you want we can proceed to a new Will. As an example if you are a divorcee you may have an old Will from when you were married which is no longer current.
