Having your Will written professionally can give you great peace of mind. Each November, you can 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 voluntary donation is £95 for a basic Will or £150 for a pair of basic mirror Wills. The next campaign will be in November 2015
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
