A survey by the Solicitors Regulation Authority found that 1 in 4 Wills were defective or of poor quality.
Whilst we appreciate it may be cheaper to avoid using a professional, a simple mistake can mean paying much more.
Figures from the Co-operative Legal Services suggest poorly drafted or ineffective DIY Wills are to blame for pro-longing the time taken to tie-up a loved one’s estate for 38,000 families a year.
Up to 10% of the value of an individual’s estate could be absorbed in legal fees as a result of an ineffective Will. With the average estate value in the UK standing at £160,000, this could mean as much as £16,000 of your savings being lost in paying avoidable legal fees.
