Wills at Home is based in West Yelland, near Barnstaple in the tranquillity and beauty of rural North Devon and is run by Alan Williams who has always lived and worked in North and West Devon. He first became involved in Will-writing on a part-time basis in 2002 while working in financial services and this became full-time in 2008.
Wills are created using the Legacy Software System which has over 6,000 professional subscribers in the UK (including solicitors) and the system is now owned by Countrywide Solicitors. For Lasting Power of Attorney and Probate applications, the necessary documents are sourced from the relevant organisations.
The client base covers Bude, Holsworthy, Launceston,Tavistock, Okehampton, Hatherleigh, Crediton, Torrington, South Molton, Braunton, Barnstaple, Bideford and all village and rural areas within. All appointments are held in clients’ homes or business premises.
How we work…
Your legal documents are extremely important so all reasonable and necessary care is taken to ensure that they are created accurately and to your satisfaction. Two meetings are arranged, the first (normally an hour) is to discuss your concerns and requirements and to note relevant information. The second is to deliver your documents and to explain the meaning of Will clauses or the details of your Lasting Power of Attorney or Probate applications. When appropriate, documents are witnessed and immediately activated.
Are Wills, Lasting Power of Attorney and Probate something of a mystery to you?
It could be argued that it is in the interest of legal services providers (including Wills at Home) to maintain an aura around the subjects and lead you to believe that you need our help. After all, if we claim that our work is very complicated and will take weeks to complete, isn’t it is easier to charge you more?
The truth is that, with experience, these matters are not as complicated or time consuming as you may have been lead to believe. Also, there is no legal requirement for you to use a solicitor or a Will Writing firm to write a Will, or to apply to be an Attorney or for Probate. You could probably do all of these things yourself, provided that you have the time to study the relevant subjects in sufficient depth.
