Will Writing General Information

Sadly, even though your Will is one of the most important legal documents you will enter into, the business of Will writing is completely unrestricted. Anyone can set up a company offering Will writing services, whether they are legally trained to provide such services or not.

The Risks of Using Unregulated Will Writing Companies

Unregulated Will writing companies tend to quote for ‘cheap’ Wills, but then once in your home are well known for charging significantly more for inserting unnecessary features into the Wills. I am even aware of cases where clients have been charged thousands of pounds for setting up Trusts which are completely inappropriate to their needs and which Trusts simply would not work when put into practice, or do not do the job which was intended.

The Benefits of Having a Qualified Solicitor

Please, if you are considering estate planning, such as Wills, Trusts, Lasting Powers of Attorney, make an appointment to see a Solicitor local to you. A Solicitor specialising in Wills will always ensure that the Will is tailored to your individual needs and circumstances.

A Solicitor is regulated by their governing body, the Solicitors Regulation Authority and also has an insurance policy if things go wrong, this is in stark comparison with a Will writing company, who is not regulated at all and who may not be insured.

A Solicitor has to abide by a strict Code of Conduct and that code includes acting in your absolute best interests and also being completely transparent about costs, right from the outset.


You may also wish to consider arranging Lasting Powers of Attorney (LPA).  Please discuss this with the solicitor at your appointment.


LPAs are legal documents which give a person or persons, who are appointed by you, the power and authority to make decisions on your behalf during your lifetime when you are unable to do so. These appointed persons are called your Attorney(s). There are two types of LPA:

  1. A Property and Financial Affairs LPA, which gives your Attorney(s) authority to deal with your property and finances;
  2. A Health and Personal Welfare LPA, which allows your Attorney(s) to make welfare and health care decisions on your behalf. This could also extend, if you wish, to giving or refusing consent to life-sustaining treatment.

Choosing your Attorney(s)

You should choose people you trust completely who are over 18. People usually choose their spouse and often their children, and other relatives or close friends. An alternative is to choose a professional such as a solicitor.

Who should have LPAs? No one knows the future and anyone could lose mental capacity at any time either through illness or injury, so in an ideal world we would all have LPAs. However, LPAs are essential if you are at a stage of life where you may need additional help or support, especially if you are considering support from a professional care provider.

Advice on making your Will

Do not be caught out by an unregulated unqualified person purporting to prepare a cheap Will for you and do not ever allow someone to come into your home unless of course, you have personally invited them.
