Having your Will written professionally can give you great peace of mind. Use a local solicitor who has signed up to Will Aid and you can enjoy the added feel-good factor of supporting nine leading UK charities. Instead of paying your solicitor’s fee, you will be invited to make a donation to charity. The suggested donation is £90 for a basic Will or £135 for a pair of basic mirror Wills.
2013 is Will Aid's 25th anniversary. During that time over 250,000 people have made a Will through the scheme and got the peace of mind that comes from knowing that their loved ones are protected if the worst happens. The scheme has raised an amazing £13.6m for the vital work of the Will Aid charities in the UK and around the world.
Quite simply, if you do not have a Will you cannot be sure that your loved ones are provided for after your death. You may also leave them the stress of coping with legal complications.
Although it is possible to write a Will by yourself, it is highly advisable to use a solicitor to make sure that your Will is valid and that it properly reflects your wishes.
"I realise that if I’d made my Will myself it wouldn’t have been good enough and I’m glad we did it professionally. The solicitor helped us think through the implications and preparations for our child’s best interests. There are so many things to consider, so having the professional advice was very useful indeed."- Rebekah Webb
