The importance of writing a will with a solicitor

January 25, 2017

Writing a will is often a necessary part of good financial planning. Here, Watsons Solicitors highlight the importance of writing a will with a solicitor.

What is the purpose of writing a will?

Writing a will allows individuals to decide what happens to their assets on their passing. Without a will, it is up to the law to decide where your money and other assets will go. A will can also ensure that loved ones don’t end up paying more inheritance tax than they need to. While you may be able to write a will without assistance, it is highly recommended for individuals to seek advice on wills from a legal expert.

What is the importance of writing a will?

Writing a will with a solicitor is extremely important. There are a number of benefits to using a solicitor to provide wills and probate advice, including:


All solicitors are regulated. If you or a family member have any problems, there are different levels of action that may be taken. Here at Watsons, we have over 50 years’ experience providing advice on wills. Our reputation is second to none because we ensure all legal procedures, including wills and probate, are overseen by a partner, thereby ensuring all clients receive the best possible level of care.

You can also be sure that no mistakes are being made. Commonly, problems with wills arise because an individual has not sought legal advice. By writing a will with a solicitor at Watsons Solicitors, you can be safe in the knowledge that your family will be protected in the worst-case scenario.
