Pricing

2024 Price List (from 1st January 2024)

At Greendrift Wills we believe in transparent and fair prices and the fixed fee agreed with you in writing is what you will be charged, unless your requirements change.

WILLS
Single Standard Will
 – £185
Pair of Standard Mirror Wills – £285
(‘mirror’ Wills are two substantially similar Wills for a couple)

Most Wills fit our ‘standard’ category above but, if your estate is either very simple or exceptionally complex, the following fees may be applied:

Single Simple Will – £140                                                  Pair of Simple Mirror Wills – £220

Single Complex Will – £235                                            Pair of Complex Mirror Wills – £395
(a ‘complex Will’ might include for example; eight or more beneficiaries or specific gifts, complex business interests, foreign property, or a high value estate; a ‘simple’ Will usually won’t include any property)

These are Wills which are drafted to include one or more of the following Trusts:

  • PPT –  Property Protection (Life Interest) Trust
  • VPT –  Vulnerable / Disabled Person Trust
  • DT   –   Discretionary Trust

Single Trust Will – £325                                                                     Pair of Trust Wills – £485
