High Street Will Writers Vs Solicitors – What's The Difference?

High Street Will Writers Vs Solicitors What's The DifferenceNot every high street will writer is a solicitor, but every solicitor is a qualified will writer. You have worked hard all your life to accumulate wealth locally or overseas, so it is economically wise to compare prices to get the best deal. But do not be lured into hiring a cheap high street will writer, as will writing is a craft that qualified solicitors are more likely to get right. Using a solicitor as opposed to a high street will writer can give you peace of mind and save the people you leave behind from a lot of stress.

Tax Issues

A solicitor can help you reduce the amount of Inheritance Tax payable on the property or money that you leave behind. A high street will writer will probably know just how to put your will together in a legally binding document. This might significantly reduce the value of the property and money you leave to your family and friends. Working with a solicitor guarantees you minimum cumulative deductions in tax to ensure that your heirs optimally benefit from your wealth.

Legal Prowess And Needs Anticipation

A solicitor does more than just paperwork. They help you anticipate the needs of your family and friends and guide you on how to update your will from time to time. The high street will writers often offer a one-off service and may not care about your changing needs. You may need to amend your will in the event that someone you included in your will dies before you and a solicitor can advise you accordingly.

Mistakes

A high street will writer may appear to be cheaper but is it worth risking your hard earned money? If a high street will writer makes a mistake in drafting your will, you may not be fully covered by their professional indemnity insurance. Working with us, on the other hand, means you are covered for up to £3,000,000 if a mistake is made.

The complexity of your will may depend on the number of people you want to include. It will be fairly straightforward if you have a small family that you want to leave everything to. You must plan carefully if you have a big family or many people that you want to inherit your estate. Bowsers are local solicitors with offices in Wisbech and March. We possess a legal practice quality mark and offer our services at reasonable prices. Call us today if you need to get started with your will.
