DIY wills can be a false economy. I'm one of the executors of my aunt's estate and the DIY will has taken some sorting out because it wasn't witnessed properly. That was complicated by one of the witnesses being no longer capable of running their affairs and the other was quite elderly and frail and could have passed away at anytime.
NO NO NO NO! Don't do it! I've read on numerous occasions cases where people have done DIY will which have not been valid. There is a poster on here whose DH is a probate lawyer and apparently he makes more money from sorting out cocked up DIY will cases than he does for drafting wills.
Another regular on here has her own will writing business that I would recommend, Marlow Wills. Think it is in small businesses. It really is money well spent to ensure no problems in the future.
Yes, lots of tissues, there will be many tears (of joy!) Just think how much my food bills will reduce. I won't get up in the morning and find all the sodding lights in the house on and the living room looking like a squat You have a teenager don't you, you must have some experience of that!
This reminds me, I really must get off my arse and instruct you to draft new wills for DH and myself. Keep putting it off and have just realised that since our last wills were done I've had two more DC, sold a house, bought a house..... lalalala, us lawyers are the worst!
I am definitely going to be in touch to get our wills sorted. I had tried to find your advert in the classifieds section before but the link wouldn't work - so I gave up!
We have often talked about getting wills sorted but never got round to it - even though we now have 2DC and KNOW we need wills! What with his commute and him working when I am not and vice versa we just never managed to get an appointment we could both make.
I have just had a look at your website and being able to sort it all by telephone and email looks great. I don't know why we didn't think of that before - I am sure we did that when we bought out house! Will get DP to get in touch in the next fortnight as he is on leave from work!
Just a question (sorry to hijack) will you need to speak to both of us or will he be able to sort everything?
