get married, have your first child, retire, or any other significant
milestone in your life is reached, it is considered wise to
draft a will or update your current will.
If you already
have a will drafted for free by your generous banker, look
to see if they are now nominated as executors, and consider
the financial consequences this may have for your estate,
and those you want to provide a future for. We will gladly
draft your will and include an executor of your choice. This
means that you can select someone that you trust, even though
they may not have the necessary skills to execute your will.
If your bank or some less scrupulous others drafted your current
will and had themselves nominated as executors, they are likely
going to charge your estate the full executors fees. If you
select a family friend or family member that you trust, and
give them powers of assumption, they can negotiate with a
few lawyers to arrive at a fee structure that reflects their
effort, not their greed.
