Don't get caught out - as Mr Everall did - losing out on the best part of £1,000,000 of an inheritance. Use an independent, qualified and regulated adviser, like a Solicitor, to prepare your Will.
Poole left a will, executed in December 2012, appointing Everall as his executor and leaving him virtually all his remaining money, which was still over GBP1 million. Everall himself had drafted this will. Poole's deputy Jonathan Lloyd apparently only learned about his death after Everall had obtained a grant of probate. Lloyd was worried by the will lodged with the grant, because it was home-made with no involvement of a professional or assessment of mental capacity. Lloyd was also aware that Poole had made an earlier will the previous February leaving significant sums to various charities as well as to his brothers Darren and Sean.
