How much does it cost to write a will? is usually the first question people ask. Such a simple question ought to have a straightforward answer but without knowing a persons circumstances it would be foolish to give a quick answer. Not all Wills are the same.
Do you need more than just a basic Will?
In my opinion half the Wills I write for clients are not the basic kind because there are important factors to take into account, such as providing for a vulnerable beneficiary, owning assets overseas, owning a business to name a few.
What should you ask?
What qualifies you to be a Will-writer? How long have you been a Will-writer? What experience do you have? Why should I use you? What assurances can you give me? What level of professional indemnity insurance do you have? Do you have client testimonials and where can I see them? Needless to say we would be delighted to answer all of these questions for you.

So who will you choose?
Yes there are a lot of cheaper places you can go to for your Wills, you may get a good job done but do not forget that your Will is going to direct where everything you own goes so getting good advice that you can trust is always going to come at a price. DIY or Online Wills should come with a disclaimer that puts the risk of it going wrong back on your shoulders.
