Unlike many online Will services, we only charge an initial flat fee for making your Will. Many 'free' online Will services make their money by charging commission for the administration of the deceased person's estate (probate) without disclosing these charges. We would discuss our charges for probate with your family who would not be bound to use our services.
Below is an explanation of the products on offer and a summary of our competitive prices.
Single Will - £150.00+VAT Mirror Wills - £200.00+VAT
A single Will is made by a single person disposing of their estate. Mirrored Wills are made by married couples, those in registered Civil Partnerships or cohabiting couples where typically the first person to die leaves everything to the survivor, and the survivor then leaves their estate to the chosen beneficiaries. It would always be open to the survivor to change his or her will after the first person dies.
Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA)*
Single Financial LPA including registering the LPA £350 plus VAT( but not including the court fee of £82)
Mirror Financial LPA including registering the LPAs £550 plus VAT (not including the court fees of £82 x 2)
A Lasting Powers of Attorney is a document whereby you can choose who would deal with your affairs and property, typically if you were to become mentally incapable of managing your affairs.

Family Protection Trust

Notice of Severance
Per Property - £50+VAT & Land Registry fee
This allows a couple to leave their respective shares of a house in accordance with their Wills as tenants in common rather than by survivorship which happens if they are joint tenants. It is necessary to sever the tenancy if a Family Trust Will is required.
