This authoritative reference book provides the will draftsman with the tools needed to prepare wills for the more commonly encountered situations. The text is split into three parts:-

  • Commentary - provides an analysis of the underlying law
  • Precedent clauses - which can be readily assembled to make up wills for most circumstances
  • Statutory material - extracts from the legislation which informs the law.
Written in plain English, the book takes a practical and up-to-date approach to will drafting which helps make wills comprehensible to clients. As well as commonly used draft wills, over 75 individual clauses are appended on an accompanying CD-ROM for easy word processing.

The 9th edition of this well-regarded book is substantially updated to take account of changes in legislation, case law and practice.
