If you die without making a will your wealth could go to the person you least want to have it and your loved ones could lose out, perhaps to the Inland Revenue. The practical, easy-to-follow advice contained in "Wills and Probate" has already helped thousands of people to make their wills. Whether you are single, married, divorced or co-habiting, it will show you how to write your will in such a way that your wishes can be carried out without complications. The book not only provides sample text but demonstrates how to change it at a later date. The second part of the guide covers probate: the administration of the estate of someone that has died. This book will enable you to decide whether you can execute the will confidently by yourself or whether you should call on professional help. A detailed case history runs through this section, including draft letters to exemplify the various points made. Covering the law and procedure in England and Wales, and outlining the main differences which apply to Scotland and Northern Ireland, this revised edition highlights changes in government policy towards inheritance and also describes what happens if there is no will.

As far as writing a will is concerned, the book provides inadequate information to do it properly by yourself but does give you all of the questions that you need to think about. As such, I would recommend this book to someone to read before seeing the solicitor.
