So-called ‘Do It Yourself’ Will writing packs have become more popular over recent years. This is mainly because of the reduced cost of DIY Wills. People who are incorrectly filling in homemade wills could leave their family seeing things go terribly wrong, however . It could even end up costing their family a lot more than the price of a professionally drafted Will.
There has been an increase in the number of people who could be disinheriting their loved ones by making errors. These errors could be things like asking a beneficiary or a family member to be a witness to the will. This results in them not being able to receive anything under the Will. Other mistakes include spelling errors, incorrect names or in some cases people not signing the Will at all.
Wills are complex documents and it is important to obtain expert advice to make sure you have peace of mind. This will ensure that your families don’t have any additional worry or stress. A correctly drafted Will can help protect against care costs, inheritance tax and all manner of things that you may not think about if you were to attempt to do the Will yourself.
