that a survey showed that 1 in 4 Wills are either defective or of poor quality?

Yes it’s a worry isn’t it?  A survey by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and others surveyed Wills prepared by solicitors and non-solicitors and found that 1 in 4 Wills were either defective or of poor quality.

 

We have seen many examples.  In one case the lady left everything to herself!  That would have had disastrous results if it had not been picked up in time.  That will also be more common than you think as most Wills are prepared on computers these days.

 

In another case the client meant to leave the house to her step-children but instead left it to her niece and nephew.  This case involved 5 firms of solicitors in the resulting dispute. 

 

Is your Will one of the 1 in 4 which is defective or of poor quality?  The best way to find out is to use McClure’s Free Will Review service.  We will review your Will free of charge and if it’s OK, that’s good to know.  If however you need a new Will then you can simply use McClure’s Free Will service.
