Making a will can be daunting. It takes time, money and thinking about your own demise. No wonder so
many of us haven't got around to it. If your circumstances are straightforward then the internet just made the
whole process much easier and cheaper for you.
You can find pages of online will writing services at the click of your mouse. Some work completely online,
some via phone and post and others offer a more personal service with will writing consultants or advisers
who will visit you at home.
Whichever method you choose depends upon your personal preference and how much your are expecting
and willing to pay to make a Will. One thing you need to remember when selecting a Will writing service is
what credentials and level of expertise are you buying.
This is important because there are no formal qualification or regulatory requirements to become a will
writer. But only a properly trained professional Will writing service can ensure that your Will is correctly
drafted. DIYor badly made Wills can be just as bad (and sometimes worse!) than making no Will at all.
Tips for Choosing a Will Writing Service
- Find out their level of experience and knowledge by visiting their website and giving them a call.
- Do they have any or adequate insurance cover should they get it wrong.
-Are they a member of a industry body such as the Society Of Will Writers, the Institute of Professional Will
Writers or Society of Trust & Estate Practitioners. If a will writing service cannot show this, be cautious.
- Check online for reviews written by customers who have already used the will writing service.
