How do you know which internet provider to use to get a cheap will done online? That is a very good question and one that I don’t have a clue about either, so what should you do about it? Very simply don’t go there…
It is like anything in life: Its unwise to pay too much, but its worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money that is all. When you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot it cant be done. If you deal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.
So in short, you need to be paying the right price, for the right service because where Wills are concerned, it is all about advice you can trust in order to put the right kind of Will in place. So how much is the right price?
The Legal Services Board (LSB) recently conducted a survey into setting baseline prices paid for a number of relatively straightforward scenarios by asking over 400 legal firms across the UK. The full report has been published on the LSBs website here, and the average prices were as follows:
|Individual will – standard||168|
|Individual will with a more complex client background||206|
|Lasting power of attorney||414|
|Assistance for obtaining a Grant of Probate||829|
|Assistance with Estate Administration||1,926|
