Why should I instruct a firm of solicitors to draft my Will?

It is important to obtain expert legal advice when deciding to make a Will to ensure that your wishes can be met in practice but also, to ensure that your Will is valid.

The common issue with Do it yourself (DIY) Wills is that they may be invalid if they have not been signed and witnessed correctly. This could mean that instead of the people who you have mentioned in your Will to benefit from your estate, your estate would be distributed by the rules of intestacy therefore someone else may benefit instead.

The benefits of using Passmores Solicitors are that you can meet with a friendly and professional member of our team to discuss your Will in confidence and receive the appropriate legal advice to suit your individual circumstances.

Our lawyers will explain to you how your estate would be administered in practice to ensure that all of your wishes can be met and advise you if there is something that may be complicated for your loved ones to deal with or may not be possible due to your personal circumstances.

Once your Will has been drafted, we will meet with you to review the draft to ensure you are happy before requesting your signature. We will ensure that your Will is witnessed correctly and will arrange storage of the original Will free of charge.

Here at Passmores, we understand that a Will is not the most comfortable topic of discussion and we pride ourselves in providing you with the appropriate legal advice in a relaxed, friendly environment. We can arrange a home, hospital or residential care visit if this is more convenient for you.
