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: 1. commentary - provides an analysis of the underlying law; 2. precedent clauses - which can be readily assembled to make up wills for most circumstances; 3. 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 8th edition of this well-regarded book is substantially updated to take account of changes in legislation, case law and practice.
