Why use a solicitor to make a will? Private Wealth

A Will is a legal document and if it is drafted incorrectly it could cost a lot to put right any errors. You really do need a qualified solicitor to draft it for you to avoid storing up problems for the future.

Some firms claim to have dozens of ‘wills experts’ ready to draft your will for a fraction of the cost a solicitor would charge, but these are often based on a standard template and aim to fit everyone into the same mould when, in fact, no two clients’ situations are the same.

Here’s why the Law Society says you should use a trusted solicitor for all legal issues:

  1. Experts in their field – solicitors have years of training and are experts in the law.
  2. Client-focused – solicitors look at each case individually, so the advice provided is focused on your specific needs.
  3. Value for money – getting proper advice when making the most important legal decisions of your life ensures you avoid mistakes that could be costly further down the line.
  4. Honest and honourable – solicitors are regulated and abide by a strict code of conduct, so you can be sure that they will do what is best for you and your case.
  5. Approachable and accessible – a good solicitor provides a service that best meets your needs and will keep you informed every step of the way.
