Will Writing Services in Essex – Average Fees of Solicitors in Essex

Will Writing Services in Essex – Average Fees of Solicitors in Essex

A Will is one of the most important documents we will write in our lives. There are multiple options available to get this job done – you can pay a solicitor in Essex, use a Will Writing service or make use of a DIY Will Writing 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 when a Will is uncomplicated and are almost always cheaper than a fully in-person, detailed approach. However, if a Will is more complicated, or the estate is particularly large, these options will be less beneficial.

Will Writing services can also 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, paying for professional and comprehensive legal services from a solicitor is the preferred option to have the job done right.

Types of Wills differ too, from a simple standard Will where the instructions are straightforward, to those requiring more detail for more complicated estates. These different types of Will can vary the pricing a fair amount. Often, where two Wills will be largely the same, for example in the case of a spouse, it can be a good, cost effective idea, to make both Wills at the same time, known as ‘Mirror Wills’.

There is a lot to consider when writing a Will. On this page, AgeSpace has listed some Will making services throughout Essex, alongside their contact details and a cost indicator where possible. 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.
