What a professional Will writing service can offer you
‘Will writing advice to help you express your wishes’
Once you’ve decided you’d like to put your affairs in order by writing a Will, there are plenty of options to choose from. You can even get DIY Will forms on the High Street and the internet. So what are the advantages of using a professional Will writing service?
Why it pays to take Will writing advice
You want to make sure that your assets are protected for your family and your loved ones. Our Will writing service can help you put together a Will that’s robust enough to safeguard your wishes.
- Beware of DIY and homemade Wills
You might think that your affairs are fairly straightforward, or that you don’t have many assets to leave behind. Alternatively, you might be thinking that using a DIY Will could save you money. However, we often see Wills drawn up in confusing, ambiguous or unworkable language that can lead to delays, disputes and even added tax burdens for people inheriting the estate. So the DIY route may well be a false economy.
- Make sure everything is included
Although assets may appear uncomplicated, we often see Wills that haven’t taken into account things like pensions, shares and death-in-service schemes. With professional Will writing advice, you can make sure that everything is included. This can also help to avoid any extra and unnecessary tax burden later on.
- Update your Will regularly
Once your Will in place, it’s important to review it every so often to make sure it still reflects your circumstances and your wishes. A professionally written Will is still the best and most cost-effective way to make sure nothing is overlooked.
