Do you need to make a Will but don't know where to start? Are you baffled by the array of choice that's available? Do you really need to go to a solicitor or would one of those DIY Will kits do? And why are some DIY Wills rejected at Probate leaving a sorry mess for the bereaved? What about using the bank, or downloading a Will, or using the high street corner shop's new business? And just why are Will-writers, seemingly, the hapless fodder for investigative journalism? Or, have you already made a Will and would just like another viewpoint whilst you still have the ability to change it? The answers to all of these questions and more are in "The Good Will Guide". It will tell you why certain Will making avenues should be approached with extreme caution and, not only will it point you in the right direction but, more importantly, it will steer you away from making poor, uninformed choices which could prove to be costly for you and your loved ones. It will tell you why good willing doesn't just revolve around the making of a Will, but of the importance of leaving, in the broader sense, a good legacy.

With refreshing candour, the author examines today's Will making choices and their costs. She considers the appointing of your executors, Will storage options and offers guidelines as to when you should review it. Finally, she looks at the importance of addressing the much neglected Letter of Wishes to assist your family and executors. It is a simple book written without jargon to assist the lay public. It could literally save you thousands of pounds.
