Wills and estate planning: your questions

A house and legal documents
BBC Radio 4's Money Box Live

Monday, 3 November 2008,

at 1502 GMT

On Radio 4 and Online

On Monday's Money Box Live, Vincent Duggleby took your questions about wills and estate planning and put them to a panel of expert guests.

Making a will is often a subject which people find difficult to tackle but without one, decisions about how your assets are distributed will be taken by the state.

This November is Will Aid month, giving people the opportunity to make their will and give to charity instead of paying the solicitor's usual fee.

If you want to find out more or have a question, why not contact the programme?

Whatever your concern, our panel of experts was here to give you advice.

Vincent Duggleby was joined by:

• Alan Barr, partner at Brodies and director of legal practice at University of Edinburgh
• Nicola Plant, partner at Thomas Eggar
• Mike Warburton, senior tax partner at Grant Thornton

Presenter: Vincent Duggleby
Producer: Lesley McAlpine
