THE ANSWERS TO YOUR
WILLS & PROBATE QUESTIONS

ANSWERED BY

DARRELL COLLINS

HEAD OF WILLS & PROBATE

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO MAKE A WILL?

For a Will made through our Free Will Service, you will only pay for the disbursements. These are the costs we incur on your behalf to make your Will; Anti Money Laundering checks, Verification of ID etc. However, should your Will become more complex then your fees may vary but your solicitor will discuss this with you before performing any work.

For a Single Will, our fees are £250.00 + VAT (total £300.00) and disbursements.

For a Mirror Will, our fees are £350.00 + VAT (total £420.00) and disbursements.

IS PROBATE ALWAYS NECESSARY?

No, probate won’t always be necessary. A good rule of thumb is that if the person owned any property, had more than £5,000 in savings, or owned any stocks or shares, you will probably need probate. If the answer to most of those is “no” then you probably won’t need probate. If you need help working out whether or not you need probate, our solicitors can help you to work it out in minutes.

WHAT DOES AN LPA COVER?

HEALTH & WELFARE LPA

A Health & Welfare LPA lets the nominated ‘attorney’ make decisions about any medical treatments that you need and your daily care such as where you live, your diet, and who you see.

PROPERTY & FINANCE LPA

A Property & Finance LPA lets your ‘attorney’ make decisions about your money and property including bills, selling/remortgaging your property, and your pension

WHAT IF SOMEONE DIES WITHOUT A WILL IN PLACE?

If someone dies without a valid Will in place, they are said to die ‘intestate’ meaning that the rules of intestacy decide what happens to their estate, regardless of what the deceased would have wanted.

You can find our handy intestacy checker here.
