A properly thought through Will can take the worry about what will happen to your estate when you die.

If you do not leave a Will your estate will be distributed in accordance with the intestacy provisions which may mean your estate passes to people you do not wish to inherit.

We offer a service to provide simple Wills. Where a Will involves advising on a Trust or Trusts or specific taxation matters we would refer you to an alternative solicitors practice because this is outside our area of expertise.

Our fees for Wills are:

Single Will (i.e. the will of one person) – £150.00 + vat

Mirror Will (i.e. where two people leave each to the other) – £225.00 + vat


Lasting Powers of Attorney are different to Wills in that they come into force whilst you are alive at certain trigger points. The general principle behind Lasting Powers of Attorney is to enable someone else to make decisions on your behalf (as if they were you) in relation to your property and finances and health and welfare matters when you are unable to make decisions for yourself.

There are two types of Lasting Power of Attorney:

  • Lasting Power of Attorney for Property and Financial Affairs
  • Lasting Power of Attorney for Health and Welfare

You do not have to make both Lasting Powers of Attorney. They can be made independently of each other and at different times if you decide to make one but then think you would like to make the other.

Our fee for drafting a Health & Welfare Lasting Power of Attorney is £250.00 + VAT.

Our fee for drafting a Property & Financial affairs Lasting Power of Attorney is £250.00 + VAT.

If you decide to have both Lasting Powers of Attorney drafted at the same time and with the same attorneys then a discount can be applied making the total fee £400.00 + VAT.

The Office of the Public Guardian (OPG) charge a fee for the Lasting Power of Attorney to be registered. Currently the fee is £82.00 per Lasting Power of Attorney being registered. The registration fee is charged in addition to our fees.

Dependent upon the financial status of the Donor (the person making the lasting Power of Attorney) it is possible to apply for fee exemption in respect of the registration fee. Details of how a person qualifies for the fee exemption can be found in the link below.
