Although the recent changes have eased the situation for married couples, this explains all the background information.
As a WillWriting company we can only deal with gifts upon death but you should also consider lifetime transfers.
Here we provide some information on what you should be thinking about before our visit including what services we offer.
How much does it cost to make a will?
One standard will costs just £149 with two standard wills £189. We charge an extra £10 for an evening visit – that is after 16:00hrs. For a full statement of the services we offer and their prices please see our Fees & Services document.
Do we have to visit your offices to make a will?
No we visit you at a time and place of your choosing.
We live a long way from your main office in Manchester. Will you still come and visit us?
Yes – we have other offices and will visit you anywhere in England and Wales.
How long does it take when you visit?
It’s hard to be precise because clients’ needs and circumstances are different. A good guide is to set aside an hour. We will spend as long as necessary with you.
Are you solicitors?
No, we are specialist will writers. We have been in business for over 20 years with over 60,000 clients.
We’re in Willcare and we pay a monthly fee. Can we stop the payments?
You agreed to continue making Willcare payments for a minimum period of 3 years. After that you can continue paying, change to one of our other Willcare packages or pull out of Willcare completely. Just let us know what you want to do at the time.
You are holding my will in your safe and secure storage system. If I want it back or my executors need to get it back after I die how is it done?
Just contact our office and we will send a simple form that you/your executors need to sign and return to us. We will then post your will back to you.
We left your Willcare option but payments are still leaving my bank account?
Willcare payments are made to us by standing order which is your instruction to your bank to pay us. When you left Willcare you will have been asked to cancel the standing order – we can’t do it – your bank won’t accept instructions from us. If you didn’t tell then to stop then please do so. If you told them to stop and they didn’t obey your instruction tell them again and ask them to refund the payments made in error.
I’m the executor of my Dad’s will and he’s just died. What do I do?
Our Probate Department is very experienced in giving advice in these situations. Advice over the phone is completely free. If you want us to do the job of administering the estate for you we will arrange to quote a fixed all inclusive fee. Contact us and we’ll arrange for our Probate Department to call you.
How do I update my will?
Easy! Contact us. If we have visited you recently and the changes are straightforward we may be able to do it by post. Otherwise we will arrange to visit you again. Either way the cost is the same. The cost depends on which, if any, Willcare package you have chosen to join. For example, in Platinum Willcare there’s no cost at all. Please see our Fees & Services document.
