The Danger of DIY Wills

Writing your own Wills isn’t as easy as you think… We’ve been writing Wills for clients for over 20 years. All of our team undergo regular training just to keep their knowledge up to date and our founder Philip Pamment has undertaken countless qualifications and courses.

The main issues surrounding writing a Will for yourself is that we don’t know what we don’t know.

You may not know what type of gift will have the least restictive impacts on loved ones. On the other hand, you may wish to add restrictions to gifts but without knowledge about how and what you could do, your Will is likely to be very basic.

Next, you may not know about the impacts of exclusions within Wills. Excluding people without careful consideration could result in a successful claim against your estate. Our consultants can help you to write a Will to stand up to these potential challenges and the advice we provide will help you understand why careful planning is needed.

Additionally, you are unlikely to know the impact of having people who are beneficiaries, to witness the Will. This is all too common and easily avoidable with proper advice.

Of course, we are going to suggest you seek our advice because we’re in the business of Will Writing and estate planning, but we wouldn’t still be in business after 20 years if we didn’t provide quality advice and look after our clients. Over the years we’ve supported thousands of clients.

These are three examples of where not knowing the ins and outs of our profession can cause serious consequences and ultimately can end up costing your estate more money than if you had sought professional advice in the first place.
