HOW MUCH DOES A WILL COST?

All meetings with HWW are free of charge and you will only be invoiced for the work done on completion of a satisfactory service. For most clients, a simple will should meet your needs. This means that the cost of writing a will is either £95 (for an individual) or £145 (for a couple).

If we recommend a more complex solution after discussing your needs, we will send you a written report detailing our recommendations and the reasons for the recommendations together with the total cost of the proposal before you proceed. At this point, you are welcome to opt for a simple structured will if you so wish, but we will always recommend wills that we think most suit your needs as part of our service to you.

Please see below our schedule of charges for a detailed explanation of our charging structure from: (VAT is not chargeable).
