Over half of the public think will-writing should be regulated, YouGov research for the Law Society has shown. A survey of 1,554 adults found that 55% wanted all will-writers to be regulated while over 95% praised the services provided by solicitors.

Almost 90% of respondents who had a will drafted by a solicitor were satisfied with the process and 81% said they were happy with the quality of legal advice.

Jonathan Smithers, president of the Law Society, said: ‘It is encouraging to see that the public are beginning to recognise the importance of using a solicitor over an unregulated will writer.’

WE Solicitors says: It is important to get a Will right. Will writers are not legally qualified and whilst some may be experienced in this field there are also those that aren’t. But how would you know?  Some will writing companies are cheap but we often see clients who have made Wills in this way and they have not been up to scratch. More often than not we have had to put things right. Will writers have a tendency to charge around £30-£50 for making a Will and will then charge £100 for storage or £5 every month. (£60 every year). This adds up. It is always worth researching the costs and shopping around to see what you are actually getting for your money. Having a Will drafted by a fully qualified professional is the best route to take. After all you are protecting your assets and your family.

We solicitors llp charge £90+ VAT for a single Will and £135+ VAT for Mirror Wills.
