4. Our service in respect of wills allows for the will to be checked by us for accuracy based on your responses to the questionnaire. Mistakes of a minor nature may be corrected by us free of charge, but any serious errors which are due to your negligence or change of mind may result in a further charge being applied for correction of the will. After checking, the will is printed and bound by us and sent back to you with clear instructions for signing and witnessing. You may choose to keep the will at home or in some other storage facility of your choice, or alternatively you wish to make use of our secure storage facility.

5. Our service in respect of Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA) provides you with information enabling you to complete a questionnaire from which we will draw up the LPA documents, whether for Property & Financial Affairs or Health & Welfare or both. We shall send the documents to you with instructions for signing by the donor and the attorney(s) and the replacement attorney(s) (if relevant) and the certificate provider and the witnesses, and we enclose a stamped addressed envelope for you to send the signed forms back to us. We shall check that the signing and dating has been completed correctly and then post the forms to the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) for registration. The OPG will then phone you to collect the registration fee by debit or credit card and once the registration has been completed they will return the documents to you. We cannot be held responsible for incorrect information provided by you, whether in respect of names, addresses, dates of birth or any other information which may adversely affect your application.

Documents will only be returned to the testator (the person who has made the will) or, after the death of the testator, to an executor of the will on sight of a death certificate and proof of identity. All documents are sent by recorded delivery.
