a will

The truth about homemade wills

Some people choose to make their own will. We think that is a mistake. Although writing your own may seem easy enough, the law around wills can be complex.

When you make a homemade will, you risk not drawing it up properly or not expressing your intentions clearly enough. A DIY will is more likely to be contested, which means the whole process of giving away your assets could end up in court.

That is why, when you make your will, it is important you have it drafted by someone who understands the law and can advise you on the best way to make sure your assets end up where you want them to. And that means engaging a solicitor.
