It would have been interesting if this survey had included the prices of powers of attorney, given that the number of these being prepared has doubled in the last few years.  Why is it that a will, which should be a piece of bespoke planning, is seen as a cheap commodity yet a lasting power of attorney, which is essentially a prescribed form, can command prices high in excess of those commanded by wills? Initiatives such as WillAid, whilst very commendable in themselves, do nothing to inform the public of the true value of a well-drafted will as part of planning for the future.
