We offer a fixed fee service for the preparation of Wills, which are outlined below.
The cost of a single, straightforward Will starts at £175 plus VAT. Mirror Wills start at £250 plus VAT.Mirror Wills cover couples and partners, and we will take into account the assets and wishes of both parties.
If we envisage any additional charges being incurred over and above the fixed fee, we will discuss this with you during your free initial consultation. Depending on the size of your estate, the complexity of your personal situation we will be able to recommend the most appropriate way forward for you and your needs.
For a will to be valid:
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.
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.
