Covers the things a solicitor would tell you if you could afford to pay for the time it would take. -- A reader
From the Author
This book is written to assist you whether you wish to prepare your own will or to use a professional to make it for you.It is the result of experience gained by listening to thousands of clients, advising them and preparing wills to meet their needs during over 30 years in practice as a family solicitor.
The book covers more than the formal factual legal reuirements of making a will. It also gives general and specific advice on the many and wide ranging matters which it is essential to consider when making a good and effective will. These include inheritance tax saving, the number and choice of executors, funerals, guardianship of children, avoiding challenges to the will, the family home, the handicapped, remarriage, living wills, foreign property, wills made abroad deeds of family arrangement and much more.
A detailed index is included to help you find what you are looking for without difficulty together with easily adaptable sample wills with full notes and instructions for completing them and a checklist.
Above all I have tried to bear in mind throughout that the book is intended primarily for non-lawyers and to take a logical, step-by-step approach using only plain English. I have used as few technical terms as conveniently possible and included a glossary to explain those that have been used.
I think it will enable you to prepare a good will which will meet your requirements.
