What is the cost of a will?

The cost of making a Will with us is broken down as follows:

A Will Preparation fee is £125+ VAT.

Single Will = £250+ VAT (tailored Meeting  + Preparation Fee).
Couples Will  = £375+ VAT (tailored Meeting + Preparation Fee).

Our fees for making a Will include storage.

More complex Wills incorporating multiple gifts, Trusts or Tax planning can cost more depending on the type of trust. As a guide for making a Will and Trust together you will be looking at costs in excess of £800.
