I have obtained a Do it Yourself printed Will pack from W.H.

Customer Question

I have obtained a 'Do it Yourself' printed Will pack from W.H. Smiths. When filled in, signed and witnessed, should this be notarised. It is simply leaving all assets equally to our children.

Thank you very much. Ella

Thank you for your question
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Provided that you are happy that you have completed the forms correctly then there is no need to show them to a solicitor - indeed there is no. Point I doing so as this would cost as much as having them prepare simple Wills anyway.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further information.

Can you possibly tell me approximately how much a solicitor would charge to draw up a simple will from my draft please?



Expert:  Clare replied 4 years ago.
On average a Will tends to cost about £90 to £100 or so - but if you can wait until November you may be able to take advantage of Will Aid - where you can make a donation of your choice
