What Are the Benefits Of Making A Will From Home?

1. You Do Not Have To Make An Appointment With A Solicitor's Office

Making an appointment with a solicitor can be a frustrating experience. There will only be limited slots available. You will also have to travel to the solicitor's office for a meeting. This costs you both time and effort.

With the Farewill online Will writing service you can see exactly which time slots are available for a 15 minute telephone call and book a slot which is ideal for you. You can do all of this from the comfort of your home. You can speak to a Will writing expert seven days a week if you need to.

2. Your Will Can Be Written In Private

High Street solicitors' offices are usually intimidating places with lots of formality. Therefore, writing a Will can feel like a hassle and a process led by the solicitor, rather than your wishes.

With Farewill's Will writing service, you can concentrate on the more personal aspects of Will writing, rather than just focussing on money, assets and beneficiaries. You can choose to leave personal messages to loved ones, or out-of-the-ordinary gifts. As there is no formal sit-down meeting, you have the time and flexibility to write down your full wishes to be included in your Will.

3. Inexpensive - It Only Costs £90 To Make Your Will

By not having to meet a solicitor in their offices, there is a natural saving in cost. Traditional High Street solicitors will charge anywhere from £150 to £300+ to write your Will.

Farewill's Wills cost just £90 for an individual, or £140 for a couple. This is a huge saving in cost and all from the comfort of your home!
