Holmes Family Law is now offering a remote Will service to all clients from across the UK to ensure your Will can be prepared and put in place at the earliest opportunity.
How does the service work?
Get In Touch with our team today to start the ball rolling. You will be assigned to one of our private client solicitors to discuss your requirements and ensure any wishes you have are discussed and provisions are made for your family, friends and loved ones. Your Will is drafted and is then sent to you via email or post for you to sign and witness. During these unusual times, we can advise you on the best way to ensure your Will is legally valid.
How much does it cost?
For a straightforward Will without any complications or further research is priced at £150 +VAT. Any additional charges will be discussed at the time of purchase and you are under no obligation to go ahead. Mirror Wills are priced at £225 + VAT, again, any additional charges will be discussed at the time of purchase. Mirror Wills cover couples and partners, and we will take into account the assets and wishes of both parties.
I have seen Wills available for £50 online, what makes you different?
A lot of online companies that are offering Wills are not legally trained or experienced. These services often use templated ‘off the shelf’ Wills where someone will fill in the blanks with your details. In a lot of cases, a lot of the services are based offshore, and this can result in a poorly drafted Will, which may then cause issues when this is executed after your death. At Holmes Family Law, all Wills are prepared by our team of experienced Family Lawyers. As part of the service, we can also advise and provide advice around your wishes, and answer any questions you may have – something not often offered by an online service.
How can I be sure my Will is legally valid?
For a will to be valid:
- it must be in writing, signed by you, and witnessed by two people
- you must have the mental capacity to make the will and understand the effect it will have
- you must have made the will voluntarily and without pressure from anyone else.
You must sign your will in the presence of two independent witnesses, who must also sign it in your presence – so all three people should be in the room together when each one signs. If the will is signed incorrectly, it is not valid.
Our expert team of Solicitors will advise and assist you every step of the way to ensure these steps are followed correctly and that your Will is valid.
