About Us

WESTERN WILLS IS A PROFESSIONAL ESTATE PLANNING COMPANY Est.2014.

Western Wills is based in Exeter and home visits are available in EX and TQ postcodes and beyond. I also have clients in London, Wales, Bristol….. as with the use of video appointments such as Zoom, I can take instructions for legal documents from anywhere in England and Wales. Great if you are in a different area or just have a busy life!

My name is Liane Papadopoulos. My career has seen me work for British Telecom, NHS information Authority and British Gas amongst others. I joined the world of estate planning back in 2001. I had a career break to bring up my two children and then established Western Wills- a company where every client is really important and listened to. I work alongside Independent Financial Advisers/Mortgage Advisers. I also work with solicitors for regulated services if required e.g. Land Registry.  

WHY USE WESTERN WILLS?

Firstly, and most importantly, I strive to achieve satisfaction for you as my client. I want you to feel unpressured, with clear explanations throughout the process. Making sure you are happy with my service is my number one goal. See what my clients have to say! Testimonials.  . 

Take a peek at the video on the FAQs page about why to use us…..

* I visit you at home/do video call at a time to suit you.

* I offer bespoke advice. This is invaluable as wills are not “one size fits all”. I will make sure you have considered all angles to protect yourself and your estate. (You won’t get this with a DIY will kit). Remember the old adage, “you don’t know what you don’t know”! If you write your own Will and/or Power of Attorney and get them wrong, it could cost your family a lot of money and stress. 

* Very competitive prices as I don’t have large offices to run, nor do I charge VAT. Please call or use contact form for a quote.

* I am an affiliate member of the Society of Will Writers. (www.willwriters.com).This is an independent body representing the interests of both professional will writers and clients. I adhere to their codes of conduct and I had my training at their College. If any client has a complaint, they would investigate the matter. 

* I carry P.I. ( Professional Indemnity Insurance) of £2million. This covers the legal work I do for clients.

 * I have lots of experience with different situations even when complex, which the modern family can be e.g.;

Divorce, separation, remarriage.

Blended families, step-children, protecting children from previous relationships potentially losing inheritance.

Beneficiaries that are vulnerable that need protecting, special needs or addictive behaviours etc.

Protecting the family home from being lost! A big area of my work. You’ve worked hard for it, make sure your beneficiaries inherit it … See Protective Property Trust.

Businesses, these can require additional thought depending on what type of business it is.

Excluded beneficiaries; more and more common these days. Specialist advice needed for this sensitive area.

Inheritance tax problems or large estates some basic or specialist advice can make all the difference.
