It is important to make sure you get it right when writing a Will, to prevent any confusion or legal complications when putting it in action. While there are many Will templates and DIY Will Making resources out there, seeking professional Will Writing services offer piece of mind from a document that should not be the focus when celebrating a loved one’s life.
Using a local law firm to help with the Will most likely makes for a more personal approach, that you can’t always get from national online (or over-the-phone) Will Writing services. There are lots of options to choose from in Suffolk, many of which offer home visits and free initial consultations.
The average cost of a Standard Single Will from solicitors in Suffolk is around £222, however, prices can range from £250 to over £300. Most solicitors offer a discounted service when writing another similar Will (a Mirror Will) at the same time, for example of a spouse – so you should have this in mind. It is worth bearing in mind that no two Will Writing providers are the same and will vary in the amount of contact time offered, additional legal services included, whether Will Storage is provided and more.
In addition to the Will Writing services that can be found from a solicitor in Suffolk, we have also included some alternative options provided by companies that specialise in Will Writing.
