DIY Wills Warning

  • Posted

Lawyers have warned that families are disinheriting children by wrongly completing 'Do It Yourself' wills. The kits have led to a rise in people preventing family members from being a beneficiary of their will by asking them to be a witness to their signature, ruling them out of receiving anything in the estate. Nicola Waldman, of Hodge Jones & Allen, said: “It is often a result of people trying to complete wills themselves, not understanding the small print.”
