SHOULD I USE A SOLICITOR TO WRITE MY WILL?
There is nothing wrong with using a solicitor when you make a Will. They will do the same job as a professional Will Writer like myself although you may find that their fees are usually less competitive and their service is generally less convenient in that you need to take time off work to visit them during office hours.
A Will does not have to be written by a solicitor provided it is correctly worded; who actually wrote your Will is completely irrelevant. Furthermore, to be legally binding, a Will does not have to be witnessed by a solicitor either - it can be witnessed by any two competent people who are not beneficiaries or executors or directly related to a beneficiary.
Sometimes there are circumstances
where I will recommend you use a solicitor, one such time would be
if there is a very high likelihood of someone challenging your Will
and the estate you have is large, although my Wills would be worded
similar, or the same, I cannot provide a court defence of your Will
so its best at this stage that the solicitor who writes the Will also
defends it in court.
