Should I use a Solicitor?

First of all, to be legally valid a Will does not have to have been written by a Solicitor. Provided that it is correctly worded, who actually wrote your Will is completely irrelevant. Furthermore, to be legally binding a Will does not have to be witnessed by a Solicitor either - it can be witnessed by any two people who are not beneficiaries or directly related to a beneficiary.
Our on-line software generates your Will by incorporating standard paragraphs, which have legal precedent. Furthermore, every possible permutation of Will, which can be generated by our software, has been checked and validated by a qualified Solicitor.

By automating the process followed by Solicitors in drafting Wills, we have substantially reduced the cost of and time involved with writing a customised and legally binding Will. What's more, we've made it substantially more convenient. is suitable for the vast majority of people to use in writing their own Will. Provided that you follow our instructions carefully, your Will will be 100% legally watertight.

We would recommend that you seek independent advice if one or more of the following apply:

  • If you do not live in England or Wales
  • If you are married and separated (but not divorced) from your spouse.
  • If you intend to exclude your spouse or a dependent child from your Will.
  • If you own a business, a farm, or shares in a private family-owned company.
  • If you are a member of a Lloyd's underwriting syndicate.
  • If you have the power of appointment under a trust.
  • If you do not understand the instructions on any of our forms
  • If you own or have an interest in property abroad (i.e not in England, Wales, or Scotland).
  • If substantial amounts of money or property are involved.
  • If there are complications regarding the naming of a guardian for your children (see 'Guardians' section).
If any of the above circumstances apply to you, then we most strongly suggest that you use the services of a Solicitor to write your Will.
