A survey by Standard Life* revealed that 61% of adults in the UK do not have a current will. An even higher percentage of those with a will had not reviewed it recently. The most common reasons people gave for not having a will were an inability to get round to it, that they thought they had insufficient assets to require one, that they were too young to consider one, and uncertainty about the costs involved.
A will need not be expensive or complex, and is essential to ensure your loved ones are protected if the worst should happen.
Based in Motherwell, Lanarkshire & Peebles. We provide a friendly, professional and cost effective advice service. If required we will visit you ate home, in hospital or other care environment. Married, in a Civil Partnership or co-habiting? We offer a reduced cost for writing two mirrored wills.
In some circumstances you may also wish to consider a Power of Attorney in additional to your will writing, for which we also offer a reduced combined cost.
We are also proud to support Cancer Research UK through their Free Will Service for the over 55’s.
