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.
"Although we had a Will but it was very old. Our financial situation had changed and the children had grown up so it was time to update it. The solicitor was knowledgeable, approachable, and very easy to talk to. I’d recommend that people get their Will up to date through Will Aid. It puts your mind at rest and charities benefit."- Lesley Matthews
