Single & Joint Wills

Many of us aren’t very good at talking about death, so it’s not surprising that over 70% of us risk leaving our nearest and dearest with a lot of hassle and confusion by not making a Will.   The main reasons for people not having a Will fall into a number of categories:

  • They haven’t got around to doing it
  • They haven’t even thought about it
  • They think they are too young
  • They think their estate is not large enough
  • They think their estate will go to the right people anyway
  • They don’t want to confront their own mortality

But many people put off making a Will simply because they are not aware of the severe consequences to their family if anything was to happen to them. They just assume that everything will be OK.

However, if you care about your family, and care about who inherits your Estate, and you do want everything to be ‘OK’, then you need an up to date professionally drafted Will – RIGHT NOW!

Our Approach

City & Country Financial Service’s Will Writing division provides a high quality personal service, all delivered in the convenience of your own home. Our service is straightforward, hassle free and excellent value for money, with the important aspect being that we come to you, giving you the time and freedom to discuss your requirements in a relaxed environment – your own home.   After discussing your requirements, we will send you a draft Will for review and once the content is agreed, we will return to your home in order to get it signed and witnessed.

At City & Country Financial Services we charge fixed fees for the production of Wills, so you know what it is going to cost you from the outset.  Our Wills are bespoke; therefore do not all cost the same.  Some are more complicated than others, but the price we agree is fixed. However for information purposes, the normal cost for a single Will is £195 which includes free storage of your Will for a year, thereafter the annual secure storage fee is just £25 per Will per annum.  The price for a couple who want to make almost identical Wills for example leaving everything to each other respectively and thereafter to the children or where there are no children to a named beneficiary, is £295, again the storage charge for each Will for the first year is included in this price.  These are known as either Joint or Mirror Wills.

The reason we use the term Joint Wills rather than Mirror Wills is that, sometimes, they do not exactly mirror each other. Many couples have slightly different requests, they may have children from previous relationships or wish to specify different gifts to their beneficiaries e.g. in one of the Wills the man might gift his medals to his son their whilst in the wife’s will she might wish to leave her jewellery to her daughter.

Regardless of requirements each couple will always receive 2 wills, which will ensure their validity regardless of who passes first.
