  • Are mirror Wills Dead?

    From 6 April 2017 the new Residence Nil Rate Band will be with us. It exempts the first £100,000, rising to £175,000 by April 2020, of a home’s value from IHT, as long as it passes to a ‘linear descendant’.

  • The problem with DIY Wills

    I occasionally shop in the pound shop in my local high street.
