Advice and support with writing your Will
Writing your Will and making decisions about your estate can feel difficult - and it can help to think things through before you contact your solicitor or Will writing service.
Our Will writing checklist can help you think about what you'd like to achieve with your Will before you meet with someone.
- Think about everything you own. This could be property or digital assets, savings and investments. Consider their value and write it all down.
- Your family and loved ones will always come first. Make a list of the people you want to benefit from your estate.
- If you have children under 18, think about who you would choose to be their legal guardian should you pass away before they are 18.
- Think about the causes and charities which are important to you and you may like to remember in your Will.
- Finally, you'll need to think about who is going to manage your estate and carry out your wishes.
National Free Wills Network
Free Will writing from local solicitor with National Free Wills Network
As a member of the National Free Wills Network, we can offer you the opportunity to have a simple will prepared for free by a local solicitor. To take part, call 020 7825 2505 or email us with your full address and telephone number.
Once our team has referred you, you’ll receive an information pack with a voucher code and the details of at least two local participating solicitors. You can then contact your preferred solicitor to book an appointment. If your Will is more complicated, there may be an additional cost which will be agreed between you and the solicitor beforehand.
Free Will writing with Will Aid in November
Will Aid is a special partnership between the legal profession and nine of the UK's best-loved charities, including the NSPCC.
Every November, participating solicitors waive their fee for writing a basic Will and instead invite clients to make a voluntary donation to Will Aid.
The suggested donation is £100 for a single basic will and £180 for a pair of basic 'mirror' wills. These donations are then divided between the nine Will Aid charities.
To take part, visit Will Aid during September to November, and use the ‘Find a solicitor’ search tool to find your nearest participating solicitor. Appointments are limited and don’t forget to mention Will Aid.
