Bank's will-writing delayed charging: Beware!

Banks agree to review their will-writing services amid fears that
bereaved families are being overcharged £40m a year. Many banks offer
what appears to be good value will services for as little as £100 or
even 'free'. However, the banks then cash in, by being named as an
executor to look after the estate. Hence they are being charged up to £9,000 for services, which many people could do themselves.
