We live in a very competitive market where companies from a wide range of sectors offer sometimes unexpected services; supermarkets offering credit cards, shops offering funeral services and Virgin offering, well, pretty much everything!
So it can be easy to get caught up in who is offering the cheapest deal rather than researching the best suited option for you.
When it comes to writing an important document such as your will you want peace of mind that it is drafted correctly to your own personal circumstances and that when the time comes, the document will work as intended.
There are many options when it comes to writing a will. You can ‘do it yourself’, use a will writing pack from a shop, pull one off the internet, use the services of a will writer at a bank or mortgage broker for example, or you can instruct a Solicitor.
As a will is a document that you won’t ever see being used, many people will unfortunately put a priority on cost rather than value and go for the cheapest option on the market. 9 times out of 10 that will not be a firm of solicitors, but it is worth remembering that quite often you do ‘get what you pay for’ and you or your family dealing with your estate may begrudge that decision later down the line.
Here are some open and honest points to consider when weighing up whether to instruct a solicitor or use an alternative will writing service:
If written correctly by a professional solicitor there is no reason why a will would need to be re-written (unless the client’s circumstances dramatically change). So the investment in a professionally written will is a sensible choice to make to minimise risk, plan for your family’s future and give peace of mind.
The cost of a will depends on how complex your circumstances are, but for an idea of what it will cost please get in touch with our friendly team who will be happy to go through the cost and process involved when making a will.
