Making a Will

A will is an important document whose creation shouldn’t be left until the onset of old age or an illness. Consult our advice guide for all the relevant information when constructing a will, such as what to include, financial costs, and seeking legal advice in complex cases.

At Forbes Solicitors we recommend that you consider making a Will, or reviewing your existing Will following any significant change in your personal or financial circumstances; and particularly when divorce or separation are a possibility.

Many charities offer free Will-writing services, including Marie Curie . You should not be under any pressure to leave anything to the charity, but you might want to. Marie Curie also has local legacy advisors who can help you if you are thinking about leaving a gift to the charity in your Will.

If you do use a Will-writing service, make sure it’s regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority or belongs to the Institute of Professional Willwriters or The Society of Willwriters. These organisations operate a code of practice and require their members to have professional insurance.

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.
