It is a fact that only three out of every ten people in the UK have made a will. Last year the Treasury gained some £53m from people who had died intestate – without a will. The year before that figure was £76m so today, more than at any other time writing a Will is important. A Will that is written by a solicitor would vary in cost between £85.00 and £250.00 and could rise substantially should the Will prove complex.
The language of wills can be confusing and although there are some strict rules to be adhered to, we at The Last Letter have set out to make that process as simple and painless as possible. We offer what is termed a Simple Will process where there are no complicated trusts or tax avoiding inflections. For example, you may decide to leave everything to your wife/husband and list some specific items for children or other beneficiaries.
There is also the Mirror Will. This is where one Will is in the name of the husband and the other in that of the wife or partner. Each Will reflecting the same requirement and thus creating a Mirror Will.
Please press the button below to download our Free Advice notes covering the main aspects of the Wills process, the legalities and requirements etc. These are free to download and all are in plain English with no legal jargon or ambiguity to confuse or mislead the reader.
