Free Will Services

Should you use a free Will writing service?

The old saying goes “There’s no such thing as a free lunch” – we believe this can be applied to any services offering free Wills.

Q. What’s wrong with a free Will?

A. Essentially what’s happening is this – a company offer you a free Will, but the cost for that free Will is the company writing themselves in (or another company) to act as your executor with a large fee or percentage of your estate.

Q. Why does that matter?

A. This means that when you die they are at liberty to take a percentage of your estate or charge out their services (or someone else!) at whatever potentially extortionate rate they want – this fee also comes out of your estate.

Therefore we recommend avoiding any sort of ‘Free Will’ service.
