i,m in the throws of doing a will, no doubt i will end up with local solocitor. But just collecting a few thoughts on the matter. If i leave everything to a spouse, do she still get spouses excemption regardless of how she has been domiciled in this country. ?

Only i have heard that spouses need to uk domiciled for 17 years

You would be better off by going to a local solicitor, rather than trying to DIY. They should be able to quote a price for you, for what you want. If you think it's too much, just shop around. At least you wont be worrying if you get it done with them.

I Recently made out a will useing the services of WSI Ltd Willwriting Services London Based in Brentford High street, £135.00 for the will . they seem very good & come out to your house to arrange everything. They do try to sell an extra policy which allows you to change your will at any time for free & also includes a solicitor service that would help your wife ( when your Dead ) to organise everything. www.wsi-ltd.co.uk (http://www.wsi-ltd.co.uk).

I think this is the right web page www.wsl-ltd.co.uk (http://www.wsl-ltd.co.uk) but as my premium membership has not yet been passed the link isnt working, just type in the web & you should be fine , its actually £95 for a single will & £135 for a double will.

I seem to recall my solicitor mentioning something about my wife’s domicile status in relation to my will and inheritance tax but I never got this clarified or defined.

You'll probably find most solicitors will charge you less than the £95 quoted. I used to do mirror wills and an enduring power of attorney (now known as a lasting power of attorney since the enactment of the Mental Capacity Act) for that.

No expert but I was in LOS talking to someone about tax efficient wills. Seems the way to go. Seek advice.

Yes and thank you it would seem the best thing to do all things considered. It has started me thinking about a few other things, like health care costs in my old age. getting your teeth cheap is one thing but treatment for major illnesses are something else.
