Lots of people are daunted by the thought of making a will.

There's a combination of reasons for this, such as the concerns over the costs to make one and the legalese used in will documents and having to go to a stranger’s office to talk about their personal lives and possessions, these reasons tend to put people off from ever getting one written.

No surprise, therefore, that over half the adult population in the UK don't have a will in place.

When you finally pluck up the courage to get a will drafted then, be careful who you choose, the will-making industry is full of sharp practices, some firms have even set up stalls in shopping centres promising a cheap and easy will-writing service.

Even Bank, Unions and Charities offer cheap or even free wills, but there is often a sting in the tail, in that these same firms and individuals will place their names as executors of the estate and or want donations to the charity that is offering the free or cheap will. Those that appoint themselves as the executor are free to charge exorbitant fees upon your estate when you die.

Some people have tried to draft their own wills or have bought a DIY kit, but here is the problem, poorly written documents, can lead to disputes and misunderstandings, while errors can even leave loved ones accidentally disinherited. A poorly written will or one with huge executor fees is no better than robbing the dead.
