A Will provides peace of mind that your estate will pass in accordance with your wishes. Trusts can be set up in your lifetime or in your Will. They can provide tax savings, protect wealth, and safeguard beneficiaries.
Lasting Powers of Attorney allow you to appoint attorneys to look after your affairs should you be unable to do so yourself whether that is through a physical inability or loss of capacity.
Probate is the process of administering a person’s estate. An application to the probate registry is often required to give authority to personal representatives to deal with the assets and liabilities.

“We used Natalie to update our Wills now that we are married. I was a little apprehensive doing this entirely remotely by video call and email, but it was actually a really quick and efficient way to do it and something I would highly recommend to others. Natalie was very helpful explaining changes in inheritance tax and other areas now we are married and succinctly answered our follow up questions by email afterwards. Really pleased we chose her.”

Frequently Asked Questions

How much is an initial consultation?

We offer an initial friendly consultation free of charge. Should you require formal legal advice and therefore a letter of advice is required, we charge £150 + VAT.

Can meetings be done virtually?

Yes, we can hold meetings virtually over Microsoft Teams.

Do I have to come to the office to sign documents?

No, you can sign your Will and any other documents at home.

Do you do home visits?

Yes. Home visits within 10 miles of each office are free. Over 10 miles petrol costs are charged at a rate of 0.45p per mile and there is an additional fixed fee of £100 + VAT for extra time incurred in travelling.

What is the difference between a Solicitor and a Will writer?

A Solicitor is regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority. This means that you have more rights and protection as a customer. A Solicitor often has far more legal training than a Will Writer and therefore is more qualified and has greater expertise in Will writing, trusts and inheritance tax planning.

Do you certify documents?

Yes, there is a fee of £25 + VAT per document.

Do you witness documents?

We do not witness documents that we have not prepared.
