Do it yourself Wills

Hi everyone I'm new to the forums, and just wanted to share some information with you all. It's money matters, there never seems enough to go around these days, and there's always something you need to pay for. I was looking to put a will in place and found them so expensive with lawyers so started hunting around and found you could do it yourself, at a fraction of the price. We all need to save money were we can, if anyone was looking to do the same thing the company was called - it was really quick and easy, hope this is helpful to some of you, I know it was for me.

Hi people, I am also very new (as in just joined!!). Interesting info & contact details for 'Writing your own will' - I agree the charges from Solicitors are way too steep & we are also 'doing it ourselves' but we are not sure if these would be legal enough if contested???
If anyone has more info on this subject? Would love to read it!! Thanks

I have a DIY will on an official form from a stationers.I have told my two sons to sell everything of value,give the rest to charity and split the money equally ( current account and premium bonds) Straightforward surely so hopefully no problems.
