How to write a Will

A will is a legal document that states what you want to happen to your money, possessions and assets after you die. It’s important to have a Will, so that your wishes are clear and can be carried out on your behalf. Making a Will is usually simple and inexpensive, and there are many ways you can go about it.

Use a Will writing service

Using a Will writing service is one of the simplest ways to set up your Will. After asking you a series of questions, the provider will help ensure your wishes are clearly written out before sending it to you to be signed, witnessed and made legally binding – all from the comfort of your own home.

Writing your own Will 

You are able to write a Will yourself, however it’s recommended that you seek professional advice and consult a solicitor, especially if your Will or any requests are not straightforward. Solicitors will guide you through the Will writing process, and offer personal Will advice. 

You can buy a DIY Will writing pack online or at your local WHSmith! Ensure you follow all necessary steps to make it legally binding. 

 

Having a solicitor write your Will 

Solicitors are specialists in this area and will be able to tailor advice to you and your situation. The cost of writing your Will will depend on the complexities of what you wish to put in it. It’s always worth checking with a few local solicitors to find out how much they charge, and then choosing the one that’s right for you.
