Today’s blog looks at the costs involved in making and executing a will.

The costs for preparing a will vary widely depending upon the firm providing them. That being said so does the firm’s knowledge and expertise. It is perfectly possible to prepare a will without the input of a legal professional but always bear in mind that a lawyer will normally have a greater knowledge of the provisions of a will and will also be able to advise you on issues such as trusts, tax planning and taxes.
