I operate as an independent will writer and consultant providing a wills writing service to persons who are looking for a will to be written or updated and deal with applications for Lasting Powers of Attorney. I also work in association with an organisation, Golden Charter, that provides prepaid funeral plans for the over 50s and in association with a firm of solicitors I do probate work.
I previously practised in the law many years ago as a general practitioner covering all areas of the law including wills but after embarking on a 20 year+ successful sales career I decided that I wanted to work for myself rather than for others and in 2011 I started my will writing business. I have now completed well over 1700 wills in that time. I have Professional Indemnity Insurance in place for £2 million and use the same type of wills template software that is used by solicitors (Parkers Modern Wills Precedents).
I work from home in North Harrow and visit clients at their home or place of business at a date and time of their convenience, often in the evenings or at the weekend. I also do skype appointments for clients outside of Greater London. Upon meeting the clients I look at the extent of their assets and liabilities with a view to determining if they may have a potential inheritance tax liability and how this may be mitigated.
I am a member of the Society of Will Writers which requires members to adhere to a strict code of ethics and to have professional indemnity insurance in place.
My charges for wills and Lasting Powers of Attorney are competitive.
