Wills – Our fees

We offer a straight-forward approach and our focus is on ensuring you have the right information and guidance. A single, straightforward Will with no trusts costs £210 (incl. VAT) or £360 (incl. VAT) for Mirror Wills and unlike many firms, this includes free registration with Certainty, saving you an additional £30 (incl. VAT) registration fee per Will.

Stages of process:

  • An initial meeting to take your instructions
  • We will prepare a draft of your Will and send it to you for you to check that it complies with your wishes
  • We will meet again so that you can sign your wills and we can ensure that the necessary legal formalities are met
  • Securely store your Will at our offices
  • Registration of your Will with Certainty

Our fee includes:

  • Advising you about your inheritance tax position and ways in which it can be mitigated;
  • Making any amendments required prior to signing
  • Supervising the signature of your Wills
  • Storing the completed Will in our strong-room for safekeeping at no additional cost to you, and sending you a copy for your records
  • Registering your Wills with Certainty and providing you with a certificate of registration.

Our fee does not include:

  • Detailed tax advice. If you think that this may be necessary please speak to a member of the team

The fees for our service can vary depending on a number of factors including:

  • If you are creating trusts in your Will
  • If you have assets or property overseas
  • If you need information about tax planning and pensions
  • If you need information about mortgages and life insurance
  • If you want to make provisions for children from previous relationships/marriages
  • If you want to make provision for disabled children or adults

Timescales:

It takes a few days from receiving your instructions to draw up a draft Will to send to you for your approval. If you are happy with the draft copy of your Will you just need to arrange an appointment to sign your Will, otherwise if any amendments need making to your Wills it typically takes around seven days for amendments to be made, unless they are particularly complex.
