What else you might like to know about Draft Individual Will

Browse our FAQ’s to understand what things need to be taken into account when drafting a will. Here is some basic advice and guidance to help you to understand what’s involved and inform your choice of legal service provider.

Why do I need to make a will?

Making a will lets you leave clear instructions about how your money and possessions are to be shared out when you die. If you have children under 18, a will allows you to appoint a legal guardian to look after them. Making a will can also ensure that you don't pay more Inheritance Tax than you need to. A legal service provider can provide you with expert advice about the best options for you.  

What happens if you die without a will?

If you die without a will, you have no say in what happens to your money and possessions. Your estate will be divided according to special rules and may go to people you did not want to benefit. It is vital that you take expert advice from a legal service provider to ensure that your wishes are carried out.

Can I write my own will?

Trying to make your own will without legal assistance can lead to mistakes and may mean that your will isn't valid. This could lead to your money going to the wrong people and may lead to conflict.

What if I just want to amend a will?

You should review your will regularly and also after any major change in your life. If you want to make small amendments to your will, your will solicitor can produce a document to amend the will (which you need to sign and have witnessed in the same way as a will). For major changes, a new will may need to be drafted.  

How long does it take to write a will?

A specialist wills solicitor can usually draft a will in a fairly short space of time depending on the complexity. A straightforward will can be drafted and signed within 1 to 2 weeks.

How do I make a will?

To make a will you should hire a wills and probate solicitor. It is important that you choose a legal service provider with the right expertise when it comes to drafting a will. An experienced legal expert will be able to put you at ease and help you to think about how best to take care of your loved ones.

By answering a few short questions and using the advanced filters on our comparison table, you can be confident in finding a legal service provider suited to your needs.

What is the cost of writing a will?

Most legal service providers will offer a fixed fee quote for drafting a will. However, prices may vary depending on how complex your will is likely to be.

  • A very good site. It brought up several different quotes for my service which I was able to compare and I'm very satisfied with the provider I've chosen.

  • The site was well laid out and everything was easy to understand. Through The Law Superstore I found a great solicitor who has expert knowledge about the field I needed. I did look at other sites in my search for a solicitor, but The Law Superstore was the only site that didn't want payment upfront.

  • The website was really really good, I found it very easy to use and find the service I needed. It has been designed to look extremely professional and I really think it is a fantastic idea. I’ve actually got the website saved so if I do have the need for a legal service provider in the future I know where to go.
