Fixed Fee Wills and Powers of Attorney
At P.C. McFarlane & Co., we assist individuals and families in preparing for the future or the unexpected through wills. An effective will drafted by our knowledgeable lawyers will ensure that your house, your money and your personal property are distributed to the beneficiaries of your choice. Our solicitors will also assist you in understanding, examining and planning for inheritance tax implications.
Our fixed fee for wills is £200+VAT. Where a husband and wife or civil partners each make largely corresponding wills in favour of the other, we charge £300+VAT to cover both wills. This includes a full discussion about your family situation, your wishes and the alternatives that may be possible. We will cover any aspect that concerns you. We then draft your will and adjust it with you until you are completely satisfied, no matter how many conversations we may need to achieve this.
In addition to wills, we may discuss with you and recommend other estate planning documents such as:
- Powers of attorney (fixed fee £175 + VAT plus the registration fee charged by the office of the Public Guardian)
- Trusts, including trusts for the disabled
With today's modern and complex family structures, an expert solicitor is needed to properly advise on and draft a will.
