Making a Will

A Will is a document with instructions on what happens to your money, property, and possessions (your “estate”) after you die.

We strongly recommended that you seek advice from a solicitor or other reputable Will-writing service as we are unable to give you any legal advice.

Choosing a Solicitor or Will-Writer

You can find a solicitor in your area through the Law Society’s locator here. You can find a Will-writer through the Institute of Professional Will-writers here. If you’d like a free, simple Will, you can use EACH’s free Will service with Farewill (there is no obligation to leave anything to EACH)
