Areas of Law / Wills and Probate

A few months ago I got a firm to draw up wills for my wife and I by post. Although the firm made a point of telling us the importance of spelling names and addresses correctly I find my wife’s first name is spelt wrong on about ten occasions. I wrote to them about this but received no reply. Will this cause any problems when the wills take effect?

As long as it’s clear who the name refers to it won’t matter, but the service you have received from this company has been poor. You should ask for your money back unless they are prepared to put matters right, although it probably won’t be worth taking them to court over the amount involved. I don’t recommend that people draw up their wills this way; most people benefit from advice suited to their circumstances.
