How much will a Will cost?

Wait until next november and use Will Aid.

Quote from the will aid website

^Will Aid is a simple way to make your Will and support nine great charities.
A local solicitor writes your Will, then instead of paying their fee you are invited to make a donation to Will Aid. The suggested donation is £90 for a basic single Will or £135 for a pair of basic mirror Wills^

We have used Will Aid to write our original wills and, again, when we amended them. You have to book in advance as it is quite popular. There were several solicitors in our smallish town that were doing it so we could choose where to go.

The quotes I was given were even higher than those mumble chum has suggested!!! She is lovely and very efficient. I have recommended her in RL too.

We were advised the packs you can buy can be quite flawed. We paid £150 for ours - in it everything is left to our first child 'and all subsequent offspring' so we do not need to alter it when we have more children. We did it properly as have appointed legal guardians and we wanted it all very clear to ensure no family dispute if the worst happens.

High Street Solicitors normally charge (or I did, until I retired in July) around £300 plus VAT for a pair of mirrors, so £360 altogether.

My charges are on the website on my paid for advert ("5* Will Writing Service Recommended by Mumsnetters").

Don't they sell packs in wh smith for a tenner still, that should do if you're just leaving everything to kids?

Lonecat, what was the range, if you can remember?

I was quoted huge range for mine. Mumblechum a MN who has an ad in classified was the cheapest and the best.

roughly, for dh and I. We have 2 children, nothing unusual about our finances or family.
