What is a Will
A Will is a legal document which specifies your intentions regarding the distribution of your assets when you die.
Our specialist Will solicitors will draft your Will according to your instructions and provide you with the legal advice required to suit your circumstances.
As part of our Will service to our clients we have attached a Will questionnaire to our website so you are able to provide your instructions in the comfort of your own home and return the questionnaire to us. Should you wish to discuss your Will instructions over the telephone or arrange a meeting then please contact Patricia Prescott on 0161 797 4000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Why do you need a Will?
Regardless of your age making a Will is the only way to ensure when you die you leave everything in order.
Why you should make a Will:
- To appoint executors and trustees to carry out your wishes
- To leave monies or assets to family members, friends or charities
- To exclude someone from inheriting your estate
- To appoint guardians of your children
- To provide details of funeral arrangements
- To reduce the Inheritance Tax payable on your estate.

Why we do not recommend homemade Wills
Homemade wills can be unsuccessful if they do not comply with all the legal formalities or if they are difficult to interpret. The cost of proving a homemade Will to be valid can be costly and time consuming. If it is not valid your intentions and wishes may not be carried out.
The cost of making a Will does not need to be expensive. The costs of our Wills range from £100 for a single basic Will and £180 for a couple’s basic Will. If you require Inheritance Tax planning advice or your Will is more complex we will advise you of any further charge. These charges are based on the merits of each case.
If an original Will is lost during a persons lifetime a new one can be prepared at additional cost. Family members often approach us on the death of a loved one saying they are unable to trace a Will they know has been made. Without the Will a Grant of Probate cannot be obtained and the estate distributed in accordance with the deceased wishes.
Our Will solicitor team provide a storage facility free of charge and once we have prepared your Will and obtained the relevant signatures we will store your signed original Will here at our offices and provide you with a signed copy for yourself.
To avoid any problems a Will prepared by Latimer Lee Solicitors Limited, will give you the reassurance that your wishes will be carried out in full.
