Writing or amending your Will

It is really important to make and update your Will, as it ensures that you can look after your family and friends after you've gone. Writing a Will gives you control over what happens to your money, possessions and property after your death, and it allows you to support causes close to your heart. 

We recommend using a solicitor to make or change your Will. Using a solicitor ensures that your wishes are correctly followed, and potentially saves your loved ones time and expenses when administering your Will. Use trusted recommendations for a solicitor or contact The Law Society to find a solicitor in your area. You can also use a free Wills service.

"If you’re even contemplating making a Will, then it’s definitely time to make one. All it means is that you’ve got important people in your life that you want to make sure are taken care of."
