Making a Will with Co-op Will Writers
31 August 2018
Making a Will with our Will writers is simple and straightforward. It takes just four steps to get a professionally drafted fixed cost Will, after which we will store your Will for free, for life.
How to Make a Will with our Will Writers
We've made our Will writing process as easy as possible for you. We've broken it down into four simple steps, at the end of which you'll have a professionally drafted, legally valid Will which is tailored to you and your individual circumstances.
1. Start your Will online or make a phone appointment
When you start to make your Will online, we'll guide you through some initial questions, helping us to get a brief outline of your needs. If there's anything you don't know, it doesn't matter – you can just leave that part blank and we'll help you to fill in the gaps later on. At the end of our online process you'll be asked to choose a convenient time when a Co-op Will writer will call you (see step 2).
If you don't want to start your Will online, that's fine too. Instead, you can simply contact us to make a telephone appointment with a Will Writer (see step 2). Evening appointments are available between Monday and Friday, as we understand that you may not be free during regular working hours.
2. Speak to your Will writer
A Will writer will call you at the arranged time (which you will have chosen). During this conversation, your Will writer can provide advice and guidance on what kind of Will might be most suitable for you, and can answer any other questions you might have.
He or she will also discuss your situation with you and confirm any outstanding information needed to draft your Will.
3. Receive your draft Will
Once all the information has been obtained, your Will writer drafts your Will and sends it to you for review. This allows you to check it over and make any changes that are needed.
4. Sign and store
When you are happy with your Will, we'll send you the original will to sign in the presence of two witnesses and send it back to us. We'll then store it securely for free, for the rest of your life. You can tell your loved ones that your Will is stored with Co-op Legal Services, and this will ensure it can be easily located when needed.
Why Make a Will with Co-op Will Writers?
Fixed Cost Wills
We offer fixed cost Wills, so you know exactly how much your Will is going to cost from the start. A Single Will costs £150 (including VAT) and Mirror Wills (for two people) cost £245 (including VAT). For Trust Wills, we will discuss your requirements with you, after which we will quote you a fixed price upfront for the agreed work, and that price will not change.
We're regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority so take great care to provide the advice and expertise required when making a legally valid Will. We recognise that you need a Will tailored to your individual circumstances so offer Single Wills, Mirror Wills and various kinds of Trust Wills. This ensures you can get the right Will for you.
We want to make Will writing as easy and hassle free as possible and have developed our service putting our clients at the heart of everything we do. That's why you can start your Will using our online service at any time, 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year. Furthermore, as we offer appointments over the telephone, you do not need to take time out of your busy day to travel to our offices.
Finally, our Will writing appointments are available Monday to Friday from 9am to 8pm so you can arrange everything at the time that's most suitable and convenient for you.
Once your Will is written and signed, we will store it securely for the rest of your life. This is completely free. If you have written a Letter of Wishes, we can also store this alongside your Will - again, this will be completely free.
