Making complicated things simple is key to the way we work.
Fixed fees and cost certainty
To keep things simple, no matter what the issue, we’ll be able to give you a clear indication of the final cost after the first meeting.
Our Wills start from £260 (ex VAT) for a single, standard Will. Examples of what falls outside of the description ‘standard’ include (but are not limited to) having multiple beneficiaries, leaving multiple gifts, advice on trusts, and inheritance tax advice.
At the time of the meeting, you will be informed if additional charges are likely to be incurred.
Why Choose Wilson Browne Solicitors?
We are genuine experts, recognised by the Law Society, The Legal 500 (a who’s who’ of the legal world), and other professional bodies. By listening carefully we’ll gain a proper understanding of your circumstances, views and personal wishes through a step-by-step, face-to-face meeting where we can also identify additional issues that might also need resolving. For instance, in addition to a Will, it could be that some form of Trust is to your advantage. If so, we can set it up for you, advise on taxation (different Trusts get taxed in different ways), even run it for you as trustees.
When necessary, we’ll work with accountants and IFAs we trust, based locally in Leicestershire and Northamptonshire, to help us put everything perfectly in place to safeguard your future.
Wills are important and not something to be done ‘on the cheap’. By using a qualified, regulated solicitor you are getting years of experience and expertise from a solicitor who is duty-bound to keep their knowledge right up to date.
The cost of getting it wrong or producing a poorly drafted Will far outweigh the cost of getting it done properly in the first place. For example, if you are unmarried and cohabiting or have children from a previous relationship, it is particularly important that you consider obtaining legal advice to ensure that your wishes are met and your loved ones are protected. Furthermore, business owners or those with foreign assets should consult a lawyer as a DIY Will could result in unforeseen tax bills which careful Will drafting could have prevented. These errors could result in part of the Will becoming invalid or (more worryingly) the entire Will could be invalid.
We cover all areas of legal advice for individuals and Commercial law having offices in Northamptonshire and Leicestershire, operating from Northampton, Kettering, Corby, Higham Ferrers, Wellingborough and Leicester and can meet at a location that suits you.
If there is a dispute about a Will (Contested Wills) we can help. It could be that the person who made the Will did not have the mental capacity to do so, that they were unduly influenced, that proper provision was not made for dependents, or that the Will itself is fraudulent.
We are delighted that our team has again been recognised by the Legal 500.
WB are always my 1st choice and the firm that I always recommend to friends and family.
