It’s a subject we return to again and again as experienced solicitors dealing with Wills and Probate but getting a properly trained solicitor to draft your Will is very important. Going for the cheapest option is not always the best option.
You want the security and peace of mind that after you have gone, your family, business and other interests are secured and/or distributed according to your wishes. You can’t change anything when you are no longer here. If your Will provider is not asking you some searching questions and explaining the consequences of what you are asking them, you should think very hard about carrying on using their services.
My wife and I had our Wills drafted by a member of rhw’s private client team. We thought we had it all sorted out in our minds but we were asked a number of questions we had never even thought of asking ourselves. Subsequently we got a better, legally watertight and secure Will as an end result.
rhw are members of the Law Society’s Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme.
