Don’t leave your loved ones with a headache – leave a Will
It is reckoned that significantly more than half of Britons do not have a Will (Law Society, 2014). No Will means your dependants will automatically have to rely instead on laws dating back to 1925 – almost a century ago. Even if court battles and family arguments are avoided, dying intestate is likely to mean delays and missed bequests for those you leave behind, and the taxman may take a bigger bite.

When you make a Will you get to choose someone you trust as an executor to carry out your wishes, from money and property disbursements to funeral arrangements.
You will also be doing all you can to safeguard any children by considering their futures and appointing guardians if they are under 18. And if that's not enough, you can also ensure Inheritance Tax is minimised as well as dictate charity bequests.
While we’re able to deal with simple queries over the phone, we also offer free home visits in many areas. With no additional charges for evening appointments, our trained and vetted consultants will explain the process, before passing your instructions back to our STEP trained Will-drafters.
One benefit of using us is our thoroughness, but another is speed – a first draft of your Will should generally take around 20-30 working days if it’s straightforward. To keep things straightforward we also outline our prices upfront but you can click to gain an idea of how competitive our fees are.
