Help please with my mom and dad's will :(

Hi guys

My mom and dad recently got thier will sorted with a Company called Pro-Legal. My mom and dad made them executor of the will.

The Company have now gone into Liquidation, so what happens now? Is the will still valid, (Don't think we have a copy) and what about the fact that they are executor?

Please help, worried :(

Do not be worried. Find out who has been appointed as receiver and if you are able to cancel payments to them.

Then go to a firm of solicitors and have them draw up new wills. If you are drawing up something as important as a will you should always go and see a solicitor in person. It sounds as though you need a mirrored will which is one of the cheapest wills you could instruct.

Do not worry. It will be fine!! Also, try and convince them to instruct a person they know as executor/executrix as opposed to an actual company/firm.

Thank you so much for responding :)

I believe my dad has paid for the will in full with Pro Legal, so does that mean they will have to pay again for a new will to be drawn up?

probably best to make a new will, appointing new executors and revoking any and all previous wills. My parents made each other executors, then myself and sister in the event they died at the same time or after the second one passed away. Good luck hope you get sorted:):x

If they have paid in full then no. The will still stays the same but you will need to find out who the receiver of the company is as they might be taken over by someone else.

If I was you I would take the will to a solicitor and see how much they will charge you to change the executors of the will. There could have been a second executor to the will. Do you know who they are?

No need to make a new will. Just make a codicil appointing a change of executor.

A lot of solicitors do free will weeks , worth asking around locally .it is also incredibly easy to do yourself with a will pack from a stationers , if its a basic/straitforward one anyway. so long as its witnessed its as legal as one you pay for. : )

Yes, as I have already advised.

Not always and to say this it is incredibly naive.

So many people buy a DIY will and then their family has to deal with the consequences after their death.

Plus, can a DIY will give you tax advice?!
