What is a will and how we can help you
A Will is a legal document that allows you to state what should happen to your assets after you have passed away. For example, you can:
- Appoint people you trust to carry out the terms of your will (known as executors)
- Appoint guardians over your children under 18 years
- State your funeral wishes
- Leave gifts of specific items or fixed sums of money (legacies)
- Create trusts and appoint trustees to manage your estate in a particular way
- Name which people or charity you would like to benefit from the rest of your estate
A will is a very important document that every adult should have in place. Making a will clarifies your wishes and enables you to give your loved ones financial protection after you have gone. If you are a couple you may wish to have ‘mirror wills’ in place that reflect each other and this is something that we can help with.
Writing a will can be quick and straightforward provided you receive the right advice and guidance. Our advisors can help you make a will that’s right for you and your individual circumstances and also explain the cost of making a will.
It’s important to note that will writing is currently an unregulated legal activity which means that anyone can offer will writing services regardless of whether they are insured, experienced or qualified to do so.
Co-operative Legal Services are authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority giving you peace of mind knowing that your will is being written by a legally regulated organisation and by a name you know and can trust.
How much does it cost to make a will?
The cost of our will writing service start from £125.00. Co-operative members will also receive 1 membership point for every £2 spent*.
*Membership points are allocated following full payment of your Will. For Mirror Wills, Membership points will be allocated to one individual member only.
There is no such thing as a standard Will
Your Will is personal to your circumstances, your wishes and your assets. When you make your Will you will need to consider:
- Who will look after your children
- What will happen to your home?
- How much inheritance tax will be due?
