Any recommendations please for someone who can amend my current Cyprus will which was drawn up naming the solicitor as executor.........something I want to change in light of advice from this forum! Joyce

Had a home visit from a very nice lady from Willpower last Thursday.....she went over all aspects of making a Cyprus and a UK will. Returned today with the documents and copies, got them signed and witnessed and now can die happy knowing that the extremely expensive lawyer who put himself as executor in my first Cyprus will now won't be involved!

We have used them and one aspect I very much like is they can give people named in the will a reference number and contact details card to make sure in the event of death that they new where to turn to to prove the will that Willpower had stored for us in the UK. Nice feature without telling everyone the contents !
Also Jane's visits were very helpful and professional so all in all, we are very pleased to give a thumbs up to Paul and Jane from Willpower.
Having been involved with several estates in Cyprus I recommend using a Lawyer and refer all my clients to Marion Carter. She draws up wills for Cyprus, UK and Isle of Man. You should have a will for each jurisdiction in which you hold assets.
If you have no choice and have to appoint a lawyer to administer your estate, make sure you negotiate their fee and have this written into your Will to avoid being ripped-off.
Good point Nigel. If you use executors who are not the lawyer, it leaves the executors able to negotiate the costs and even sack the lawyer if they are not doing the job well. If you appoint a lawyer as executor, they are very unlikely to sack themselves.....
