How We Work
Anyone who is tempted to go down the DIY route of preparing their own Will should think again. It is a very high risk strategy which is foolhardy at best and likely to end in disaster.
Writing a Will
So that there is no room for doubt, let us be clear that:
- This is not an online service for the general public to draw up their own Wills nor to access any other legal service on the cheap.
- We don’t provide any Will templates – online or otherwise.
The “savings” on the cost of preparing a Will have to be off-set against the frustration of your wishes because a legally invalid or ineffective home-made Will has been left. DIY Wills are unlikely to help you leave your affairs in order. On the contrary, disorder or even chaos (often accompanied by expensive family discord) is much more likely to be the outcome.
Hold on to this single thought: “Writing a Will is a professional task.”
There just is no substitute for experience and qualifications. Cut price or ultra-low cost Will writing services are not normally offered by professionals.
Although there are some guidelines for you in the FAQ section, Wills Made Simple does not attempt to quote fixed fees ahead of finding out what is involved.
We will meet with you, either by way of a home visit (the preferred course), or arrange a phone consultation (with video link for those who prefer this technology) and discuss the wishes and needs of all clients to be sure we have a proper understanding of their affairs at an initial consultation.
There is no fee for the consultation.
Only after all details have been gathered can we then go on to give advice on how best to proceed and we will then quote a fixed fee for the Wills. You decide whether you want to go ahead, entirely free from any pressure from ourselves.
If you wish to go forward, we will prepare draft documents for your approval, fully explained by a written commentary, which you can review and check over in the comfort of your own home. Once the text of the documents is agreed, we will arrange a further appointment when the Will can be signed and the witnessing formalities for it can be sorted out.
We pride ourselves on offering the highest levels of personal service where your needs come first.
Founder, Andrew Spinelli LLB, MSWW comments: “This is a thoroughly ethical approach, the same as underpinned the work of the Solicitors’ profession over 30 years’ ago when I first entered it. I am pleased now to be able to provide estate planning advice and Will writing services where those values are once again at the heart of what I can offer to clients”.
