11 Aug Book a Will-writing appointment with us
Late last week we happened upon a story in leading business trade title Press Gazette. The tale involved a libel case between a few wealthy individuals in London over matters of defamation etc. It also involved the somewhat infamous case of a newly painted red and white striped house in Kensington. The story made the TV news and became quite the cause célèbre.
Now we’re not libel lawyers and we’re wise enough to sidestep such matters. But what piqued our interest was that the story involved the matter of inheritance among other things. In court, the defendant admitted, “I confirm that the wealth that was enjoyed by my father and the claimant was a result of the claimant’s inheritance and business activities. It was her money to do with as she wished…..he made no Will leaving me anything at all.”
It’s that last sentence that really struck home.
We’ve read hundreds of similar examples over the years, all founded on the simple fact that someone, somewhere has not made a Will. Indeed, more than 60% of the UK adult population don’t have a Will.
The reasons put forward for not making a Will are numerous – high cost, little time, postponement (“we’ll get round to it soon”), complexity, prevarication (“I’m not sure this is the best time”)……the list is long.
That’s why The Goodwill Partnership has made its Will-writing process so straightforward and cost effective. All our Wills for individuals are solicitor-written and low cost. Indeed, our standard prices are £125 + VAT for a single Will and £123 + VAT for a partner/spouse Will.
Better still, our Will services are home-visit. One of our colleagues actually comes to your house to take details in person. It couldn’t be easier. Indeed, if you need us to, we can come to your place of work at lunchtime or your home at the end of the working day.
