Standard

This is a Standard Individual or Mirror Will which is suitable for anyone who wants to leave everything to their partner or immediate family. It includes:

  • Specific gifts you want to leave to your family and friends, or advice on compiling a letter of wishes
  • Arrangements for the distribution of all your assets
  • Arrangements for guardians for your children if they are under 18 when you die
  • Expressions of wishes about your funeral arrangements

All the advice you need on these matters and how to make sure your Will is properly signed and witnessed will be provided by your chosen solicitor.

Non-standard

This is a slightly more detailed Will for those clients who have specific additional requirements. It includes everything in the Standard Will and will also deal with:

  • Minimising the impact of care home fees
  • More complex family arrangements, e.g. children from previous relationships, or vulnerable or disabled dependents
  • Planning to avoid unnecessary inheritance tax

Additional services (for which additional fees will be payable) may be required if you own a business, own property abroad or need highly complex tax planning advice

Should I have a Lasting Power of Attorney?

A Lasting Power of Attorney (or 'LPA') is an important legal document which gives power to one or more people you trust to make decisions for you if you cannot make them for yourself. In Scotland these documents are known as a 'Power of Attorney' and in Northern Ireland as an 'Enduring Power of Attorney'. There is more information about all types of Power of Attorney in our frequently asked questions.
