Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, our will writing solicitors are not able to answer all telephone calls. We advise that you contact us directly at alexandra@sweeneymiller.co.uk to arrange a telephone consultation.

Our will writing solicitors can help you create a will which is a legal document that sets out what you wish to happen when you die. To make a valid will, the law requires certain formalities and also for it to state clearly how your money and any other assets should be left to those that are close to you or to charities etc.

While a will is often something people don’t consider until they reach their seventies or eighties, it can be just as important for you to have a Will in your twenties, thirties and forties – particularly if you have children or if you live with a partner you are not married to.

Should the worst happen, and you die unexpectedly, a will can set out how you would wish for your children to be cared for this is called appointing a guardian.

Quite simply, if you die without a will, there is a significant chance that your wishes will not be carried out as you would want them, and a costly legal dispute could arise after your death.

What does a will solicitor deal with?

A solicitor will discuss your assets marital situation family and who you would wish to deal with your estate and who you would wish to benefit from your estate on your death.

What needs to be written in a will that you can help with?

Within your will, the following will be written: choice of executors, funeral wishes, guardians for children under 18, specific gifts of valuables or money and the division of the rest of the estate (referred to as the “residue”).

How much does a will cost?

A standard single will starts from £135 plus VAT and for a married couple from £195 plus VAT.
