Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX it is my pleasure to assist you with your question today.
If you really wanted to you could make a will yourself but obviously you run the risk of it being invalid if the correct wording and terms are not used. But often you can buy templates for wills in legal shops or online and these are the cheapest options. Of course if you want to ensure the will is valid and you have been properly advised then you should see a professional about it. Solicitors would always be the more expensive option because their charge out rates will be higher. However, you can get will drafters, not solicitors, but still qualified people that draft wills and their costs will be much cheaper. You can even get a solicitor to do a will for free during November, which is when a scheme known as WillAid runs, although you are expected to make a donation to charity in return. You can also read a good guide on your options here:http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/family/free-cheap-wills
thank you so much for that! I have never even heard of will drafters! I think that is a good route to follow, I will also look up the moneysavings expert too.
Am very happy with answer.
