Wills I just got off the phone with a friend of mine whose mum died without a will. Nightmare. Which makes me think I need to do one. Can anyone recommend a solicitor? Tweet Comments Showing 9 of 9 arwd 1 year ago Geo Gibson on St Johns Road are excellent. Megs 1 year ago Try Kenwright & Lynch above Tooting Broadway Station. Friendly, efficient service. Vivian B 1 year ago Friend of mine used Gibson's on St John's Road .. she is registered blind and the person she dealt with there was absolutely marvellous with her (she is a tad difficult because of the sudden vision problem). He got her to think of scenarios she hadn't contemplated - she has a very middle aged rubella damaged son who might or might not need assistance with independent living - that sort of thing. And the charge was extremely good ... although I am going back about four years. My sister went to one in Surrey who more or less told her to sign on the line after it was typed and Bob's your Uncle. No advice - no queries - nothing. so it really does depend on how complex your wishes will be I suppose. David C 1 year ago You can buy a will from WH Smiith for £10 and it is a legal and binding document as long as it is witnessed and signed by two independent witnesses who are not beneficiaries. Lucy S 1 year ago the WH Smith one comes from Lawpack, you can search online for it. personally, going to a lawyer is probably best - not too expensive and close, Ormerods in Wimbledon are a good bet. David C 1 year ago It's personal choice, wills are legally binding regardless of where they are from. The most obscure one when I was studying law was written on an egg shell. Sara C. Vivian B 1 year ago David C - a 'Smiths' Will is great providing everything is plain and simple .. it is when (as in a case I know) the lady put in her Will that all her jewellery was to go to her granddaughter. In the fullness of time - there were other granddaughters and it caused no end of a stink over who got what. Personally I will spend all I have - I will leave nothing - I will give it to the folk i want to have it before I fall off the perch and have the pleasure of seeing their enjoyment - not their tears. Kim S 1 year ago That's all well and good if you don't suddenly die tragically! SickOfCorruptioninactive 1 year ago You may also want to look into providing a power of attorney to cover both financial and medical matters on your behalf should you ever become incapacitated. In fact, it's a great idea for couples as it actually carries more authority than a marriage certificate/next of kin if you have to be admitted to hospital. Someone who you can trust implicitly, in any event. Comments are closed. Why not start a new conversation?
