Q.How long will it take to complete my Will?
A.It shouldn’t take more than a few weeks from the first time you come to see us, to you signing the completed document. If your particular situation is complicated or unusual, we may need to see you again, which could mean that it will take a little longer.
Q.What happens when my will has been completed?
A.The original of your Will can be stored securely by us. If so, a copy is sent to you to keep.
Q.Without a Will, what would happen to my estate?
A.It will be distributed in accordance with the laws on intestacy which may be contrary to your wishes. This may mean that your estate will pass to someone whom you didn’t want to receive anything or those that do inherit may not inherit all of your estate. It can also lead to greater time and expense in dealing with your estate.
Q.I want to change my Will but it was written by someone else, can I still come to you?
A.Yes. You are free to instruct any solicitor you wish to draft you a Will. It doesn’t matter where your previous Will was drafted.
