Parker's Will Precedents provides private client solicitors and professional will draftsmen with a thorough understanding and working knowledge of the will drafting process and, as a result, the ability to draft better wills.

It provides:-

  • A comprehensive collection of precedents aimed at anyone who needs to draft wills
  • A variety of precedents for individual clauses as well as a set of complete wills catering for different scenarios
  • An emphasis on clarity, practicality and simplicity, so you can quickly draft legally sound wills for a variety of circumstances
  • Notes and guidance on drafting and additional materials, including letters, support materials and extracts from relevant legislation
The ninth edition includes coverage of the Residential Nil Rate Band (changing from April 2017) as well as new chapter on flexible life interest trusts and EC Succession Regulation.

In previous editions of Parker's Will Precedents the precedents have been available separately on a CD-ROM.

For the new ninth edition the precedents are available to download electronically from a Bloomsbury website individually or in totality. The details of this website and the password are on page v of the book.
