A Will is one of the most important documents will will write in our lives. There are options to get this job done – you can pay a solicitor in Cambridgeshire, use a Will writing service or make use of a DIY Will writer service online.
Will Writing services come in many forms, some more personal than others. Some providers offer a completely online service in which you fill out questionnaires based on circumstance, and they will fit all of your answers into a Will. Others might complement this with short phone or in person consultations. Both of these options are particularly useful where a Will is uncomplicated. These such services are almost always cheaper than an full in-person, detailed approach, but won’t work if a Will is more complicated, or the estate is particularly large.
Will writing services can be offered by Solicitors and Law firms or specific Will Writing companies. There are pros and cons to both. Age Space recommends that although specialised Will Writing Companies often offer their services for a reduced price, that paying for professional and comprehensive legal services from a solicitor is the prefered option.
Types of Wills differ too, from a simple standard Will where the instructions are straightforward, to those requiring more detail for more complicated estates. Similarly, the price can vary quite a bit too. Often, where two Wills will be largely the same, for a spouse for example, it can be a good, cost effective idea, to make both Wills at the same time (‘Mirror Wills’).
There is a lot to consider when writing a Will. On this page Age Space has listed some Will making services throughout Cambridgeshire with the contact details and price for a Standard Single Will, to give you an idea of cost. When researching or contacting a Will making service it is a good idea to ask if estate administration or Will storage are also offered, or included in the price.
