It can be hard to think of the best place to keep your original, important documents.  We can offer secure document storage at the Archive Centre, an ISO 9001 registered firm who are fully compliant with all the secure storage obligations under Data Protection provisions.

For £20.00 per year, your paperwork can be stored at their site.  You will be given cards with your unique reference information, to enable you to access your papers at any time.  More than one card is provided so that you can ensure that the Executors to your Will, Attorneys you have appointed under an LPA, or someone else who you trust, will be able to access the paperwork should the need arise.

This storage is not just for your Will.  There may be other documents which are important to you, or which must be presented in their original form, such as property deeds.  Contact us to find out more or to arrange your secure document storage now.

Thank you very much for the fast and efficient service you provided recently in preparing a will for my client at short notice.

Having given the instructions on a Friday, I was very impressed that you provided a draft by Saturday and the final version ready for signature on Monday.

At my company we try to provide clients with prompt professional service, and I was delighted to find that you also provide this sort of service to your clients.

Needless to say I have no hesitation in recommending you to any of my clients and contacts who might need your services in the future.

Wills 

  

The Cost of Dying is increasing

When we die, we’re not there to foot the bill, so why should we worry? It can be tricky – or impossible – for loved ones to come up with a significant sum of money at the time of a death. Even more so if the event is unexpected. Prepaid funeral plans enable us to cover these costs in advance.

Get your Will checked!

If you’ve got a Will, it’s a good idea to check it’s up to date. Passage of time, changed relationships and updates to legislation could mean it no longer does what you intended. If you need a new Will we can do this for you. Our fixed Will writing costs start from £199 for a single simple Will.

Bicester, Buckingham & now Oxford!

Bicester Wills & Probate launched in 2010, and opened an office in Buckingham in 2018. We are delighted to now also have an office in Headington, Oxford. We look forward to servicing the Wills & Probate needs of the local community in Oxford.

Probate fees are on the increase

Currently, there is a set fee of £215 to obtain a Grant of Probate. The new fee to be charged for Probate applications will be calculated on a sliding scale, probably around 0.5% of the value of the estate. This will have a huge impact on the costs of most probate applications, so what can you do about it?
