Areas of Law / Wills and Probate

Our solicitor says we can’t have our wills back. Surely we should be entitled to them? Since we don’t have much money left we don’t think it’s necessary to leave wills at all.

Leaving a will would make it easier to administer your estate when you’re gone, however little you leave. However your solicitor should return your wills if you’ve requested them. If the solicitor is named in your will as executor it’s possible that he or she meant that you couldn’t alter this without making a new will. Find out who at the firm has been designated to deal with complaints (under Law Society rules every firm should nominate someone) and write to this person requesting the return of your wills. The firm may make a small charge for retrieving them.
