If you want to make or change your will

Most of us know how important it is to make a will and to keep our will up to date. But if you don’t understand how to get the process started, or what’s involved, you might keep putting it off. Perhaps you want advice, but you’re worried about how much it could cost. Do you have to go through a solicitor – or are there other ways to get help?

Get the details right before you sign

You might be making a will for the first time, making a new will, or changing a will that you’ve already made. Whichever it is, there are certain procedures you’ll need to follow to make sure your wishes are legally binding. You’ll need to think about who to include and what you’d like to leave them. You’ll also need to decide who should be your executors. Their role will be to deal with your estate after you die.

How we can help

Whatever you need to do about your will, we can help you understand your options. You might be thinking about using an online will-writing service. How do they work? Will they give you everything you need? Or should you employ a solicitor instead? We’ll talk you through the advantages and disadvantages, and what the likely costs could be. We can also help you think about what you might like to include in your will, and any potential problems to avoid.

We’ll:

  • work to understand your situation
  • talk you through your options
  • advise you on how to get the process started
