Hi,

does anyone know where I can get a free template, preferably online, for a Will? All the websites I found that say ''free'' will ask for a payment once you''ve filled in the details, and I can''t find one in the Forms section here either...?

Please don`t try and write a will yourself, pay a solicitor or your just storing up trouble for your benefactors.

If you do it yourself chances are it wont be worth the paper its written on, template, will kit, all rubbish, wiki offer a service for £48 and its a real solicitor that drafts it, i used it after my own divorce.

If you do use an online service for lords sake make sure it is actually a solicitor that writes it, even a high street solicitor will do it for two maybe three hundred.

Beneficiaries? ;)


Dukey is correct, this is one £50 that is worth every penny.
The web abounds with horror stories about small items missed on DIY wills causing really serious issues upon excercise

Thanks Dukey - I will probably use s solicitor for my own will, (tho god knows where I will find the money!)however this is needed for my mum who has no assets and only me as beneficiary so it should be quite easy...

I agree it should be a form which is legally correct too, thus I''m asking advice on here... ;)

Many thanks.

See link from Money Saving Expert www.moneysavingexpert.com/family/free-cheap-wills

I reiterate my view that having a solicitor review your will is infinitely more advisable than a DIY will
