Areas of Law / Wills and Probate

I want to make a will. Do I have to employ solicitors to do it, or can I just buy the forms myself and provide my own witnesses?

You can draft the will yourself, but any solicitor who has seen the effect that incorrectly drafted wills can have on the families left behind would advise you against it. Since a simple and straightforward will drawn up by a solicitor is likely to cost you a few hundred pounds I would strongly suggest this is something you shouldn’’t skimp on. For your money you will receive a document which will avoid any of the legal pitfalls that might make it invalid, as well as invaluable advice on the implications of what you are proposing for your family and friends.
