The Cost of Will Preparation


Speak to an expert private client solicitor today, for a free quote and discussion about preparing your will, by calling 01271 343457.

We charge a fixed fee of £225 plus VAT (£270) for a straightforward will.

Where you have two simple “mirror” wills, we charge a fixed fee of £325 plus VAT (£390).

More complex wills are also subject to fixed fees, which will be agreed with you at the outset of your matter. We will tell you what the cost of your more complex will is, before any fees have been incurred. We will also confirm to you that VAT will be added to your bill. VAT is currently 20%.

More complex wills would be those that also require us to give tax planning advice, or to incorporate a trust into the wills.

There will be no hidden extras and fees will always be agreed with you at the outset.

Once we have your instructions, we are able to prepare a will for your very quickly. If you need us to do so, we can come to see you at home, in a nursing home, or in hospital, usually at no extra cost.

If you already have a will and you want to check that it is up to date with the law and will be effective, we will check it for you for free. We will do this even if you have written your will yourself, or if you have asked someone else to prepare it for you.
