How long will I have to wait to receive my will?

READ FULL QUESTION

We’ll post it to you (1st class post) within 3 working days. Of course, there are websites which let you print it off yourself so you get it immediately, but that means it probably hasn’t been checked. We believe in doing the job properly, so we thoroughly check every will, we print it on good quality watermarked paper, we bind it with eyelets (so that nothing can be added or removed), and we hope you’ll agree that, considering a will is one of the most important documents you’ll ever own, it’s worth the wait.

If I ask you to store my will, how do I know it’s safe?

READ FULL QUESTION

At the present time, we have over 10,000 wills being stored in the secure vaults of a firm of solicitors. The wills are kept in fire-proof cabinets. When we receive the will, we’ll send you a Certificate of Storage, with details of the location. The will is only ever returned to the person who made the will (on request) or, after his or her death, to the executors, on presentation of a death certificate and proof of identity.

Do I need to make a new will after divorce and re-marriage?

READ FULL QUESTION

Yes. After marriage, any previous will you had made becomes invalid, so you (and probably your new spouse/civil partner) need to make a new will.

Why would I need Lasting Power of Attorney? I’m in perfectly good health.

READ FULL QUESTION

Think of LPA as a form of insurance. No one knows whether they’ll loose mental capacity in later life, and you can only make an LPA if you still have the mental capacity to do so. If you go ahead and appoint someone to act as your ‘attorney’ (a person you can trust to manage your finances and/or look after your health & welfare issues), you’ll be saving your loved ones from a great deal of heartache. Without LPA in place, the financial cost of solving the problem may run into several thousand pounds.

Why should I use your Lasting Power of Attorney service?

Firstly, we thoroughly check all documents before they are sent to the Office of the Public Guardian to be registered. This ensures that your Lasting Power of Attorney will not be rejected because of any obvious errors.

Secondly, the fee that we charge represents a massive saving compared to the charges of most solicitors.
