Will Writing Services
Making a will is one of the most important things that you can do to ensure that your family is taken care of when you are no longer here. Drafting a will isn’t something to look forward to, but with a professional will writing service, you’re guaranteed a calm and simple experience.
With this in mind, we have partnered with Jones Whyte Solicitors to provide a will preparation service (and they will also donate to our charity for every will they prepare).
Why do I need a will?
Every adult should have a will – without one, the law decides who inherits your property, money, and possessions. It also takes much longer and costs a lot more to finalise what happens with your estate.
By investing in will writing services, you’re able to make the final decision on how your valuables are spread out between friends, family, and charities you support.
If you and your partner are unmarried, they won’t have the right to inherit. Having a will gives you the chance to split up your money and possessions to make sure they’re protected after you pass.
Why should I do it now?
With will writing, it’s better you start planning sooner rather than later. Sadly, none of us know what is around the corner, and if you leave it until you need it, it will be too late.
We can help you get started drafting your will in a quick and fuss-free way, so you have the peace of mind that everything is taken care of in the event of your death.

Drafting a will
We understand drafting a will is something a lot of people put off as it isn’t the nicest thing to think about, but it’s important for you and your family’s future.
How do you get started?
Here are a few key steps to remember when drafting a will:
- Designate an executor
This is a person who will manage and distribute your estate. Choosing a loved one is a common option, but you can also use your financial advisor or solicitor to be your executor.
You want someone who you can trust and rely on in the event of your passing. Your executor must also be willing to hold the responsibility of managing your home, money, and possessions. This can be a daunting task, so you want someone who can stay calm and organised.
- Split up your estate
Make a list of everyone important to you and take some time to decide who will inherit what. It’s completely your choice, but for larger items like property, vehicles, and savings, it may be useful to enlist the assistance of a solicitor for some expert advice.
Jones Whyte Solicitors will talk you through the whole process, to make it as simple as possible.
- Store your will in a safe place
Keep your will in a secure place (somewhere where you’ll remember) and let your executor know its location.
It’s a good idea to review your will every few years – especially in the event of a divorce, birth, or death – to make sure all information is accurate and up to date.
How much does will writing cost?
Writing a will is a difficult thing to get started on. You’ll want to use a trusted provider, but you also don’t want to spend too much money or get tied down to complicated contracts.
There are a few different ways you can go about writing a will, one of these is using a solicitor to help with organising how your estate will be distributed.
Jones Whyte Solicitors promise affordable prices, a discounted offer for couples and no monthly costs or contracts you can’t get out of. In terms of the will writing cost, it will be £250 for solo clients, but if you go to them as a couple, it will cost £340, saving you £160.
