5-Step Advice Process
Step 1 - We Establish What Your Needs Are.
We will arrange either a telephone or face to face appointment with you at a time that is most suitable. We will open a file and obtain your instructions.
Step 2 - Draft Your Will.
Once your instructions have been obtained, we will draft your Will for your approval. All our Wills are checked by WillPack. WillPack is a founding member of the Society of Will Writers, over 30 years ago.
Step 3 - We'll Provide You With The Final Version Of The Will.
Once you approve your Will, we print a final version for execution. You will need to sign it in-front of two witnesses.
Step 4 - Execution.
After Execution, your Will is legally binding.
Step 5 - Store Your Will.
We offer to keep your original Will in our fire proof safe. Alternatively, you can retain your original Will.
Speak to one of our Will Specialists today. A Will is a legal document that allows you to specify who should benefit from your money, property and possessions after you've died. It's very important that the wording used in your will is clear and legally effective. Many people prefer to use a professional will writing service for this reassurance.
Whether you’re looking for a Will Writing service, or just some advice – we’ve got you covered…
A Will is one of the most important legal documents you will ever sign. If you die without a valid Will in England or Wales the law can decide who has responsibility for children under 18 and who receives your money, property, cars, pets and all your other belongings.
Making a Will can be quick and easy when you receive the right guidance and especially when you have a specialist to help you complete each step from start to finish. At Wellbeing Services our Will writing advisors can discuss your wishes, offer guidance and help you to make a Will that's right for you and your circumstances.
Your Will is personal to your circumstances, your wishes and your assets. When making a Will you will need to consider questions such as:
Who will look after your children?
What will happen to your home?
What will happen to your pets?
Will Inheritance Tax (IHT) be payable on your estate? If so, what Estate planning should you put in place.
Many people don't have a Will because they think it's too expensive, complicated, or don't think they need one. But it is cheaper and simpler than you think. Wellbeing Service help make the whole process quick and easy. A Will can be put together in as little as 30 minutes.
A standard Will drafted by our expert advisors is £100 including VAT (£120). This probably represents the best value for money you can get from any legal services. If complicated tax planning is required, then we can look into this for you.

At Wellbeing Services we offer a wide range of will writing services. Writing a will ensures your wishes regarding your money, your possessions and your property are carried out after you die and that your family and loved ones are looked after in the way that you want.
Types of Wills
A Single Will - A Will just for you. A Single Will allows you to:
Name the people or charities who you want to leave your things to when you die
Decide how you want to split your things amongst them
Name who you would want to look after any children you have who are under 18
Give details about specific items you want to pass on
Decide who you want to sort out your Will after your death
Mirror Wills - Make a Will with someone. Mirror Wills Explained:
In England and Wales, Mirror Wills, sometimes also called mirror image Wills or joint Wills, are commonly used by married and unmarried couples that have very similar wishes about what should be written into their Wills. Mirror Wills are two separate legal documents that are practically identical in almost every way, except for the name of the person and perhaps their individual funeral wishes.
For £150 you could set out legally what your wishes are and potentially prevent your family or loved ones from suffering distress for months or even years if there could be confusion or complexities caused by not having a valid Will. If you die without a Will in place in England or Wales, this is called dying Intestate. The Rules of Intestacy would then apply meaning that the law will decide who inherits your estate, for example, who gets your property, car, financial assets, your possessions and even your pets. If you die with no Will and you have no living family members entitled under the Intestacy Rules then the Crown will get everything.
Trust Wills - A Trust is a legal structure which can be included as part of your Will and can offer increased asset protection for your loved ones.
We would always recommend that you consider the benefits of setting up a Trust as part of your Will. They are most commonly seen in the following circumstances:
You wish to protect your estate against possible care fees in the future
You have a spouse or partner but children from a previous relationship
You wish to leave some of your estate to a vulnerable or disabled person
Usually, when making a Will, you name people that you would like to receive your estate when you die, known as your Beneficiaries. However, there may be circumstances where you would prefer that your estate doesn’t go directly to the beneficiaries when you die, but rather, that it is held on behalf of those beneficiaries in a particular way. The people holding the assets on behalf of the beneficiaries are known as your Trustees. Trustees are nominated within the Will to administer the Trust on your behalf.
Types of Trust Wills
We offer the following types of Trust Wills to assist in different circumstances:
A Property Trust Will, sometimes referred to as a protective property trust, can provide greater peace of mind if you own a property and wish to best protect its value for future generations.
Benefits of a Property Trust Will
Guarantees who benefits from your share of the property if your surviving partner:
Remarries after you die (marriage automatically invalidates any existing Wills)
Writes a new Will after your death, changing their original wishes
Can help reduce the potential impact of residential care fees on the property value for the benefit of future generations.
Who Can Benefit from a Property Trust Will?
Anyone who owns property with someone else, whether married, unmarried or in a civil partnership and:
Wants to protect the property value for specific loved ones in the future
Wants to protect the property value from the potential future risk of residential care fees should this be required for the surviving partner.
Flexible Life Interest Trust Wills
A Flexible Life Interest Trust Will can help if you have significant assets or investments as well as property, and wish to protect their value for future generations.
Benefits of a Flexible Life Interest Trust Will
Guarantees who benefits from cash assets and investments as well as property if your surviving partner:
Remarries after your death (marriage automatically invalidates any existing Wills)
Writes a new Will after your death, changing their original wishes
Allows a nominated person to benefit from the income generated from your investments if you die, whilst protecting the capital value for future generations.
Who Can Benefit from a Flexible Life Interest Trust Will?
Anyone who holds cash assets and investments in their sole name and:
Wishes to take care of a nominated person such as a surviving spouse, but help protect the capital value of investments for specific loved ones in the future
Wants to protect the value of the investments for future generations.
Discretionary Trust Wills
A Discretionary Trust Will allows you to appoint trustees to manage inheritance on behalf of vulnerable loved ones who require assistance.
Benefits of a Discretionary Trust Will
• Guarantees that vulnerable people are given assistance in the management of their inheritance
• Reduces the risk of state benefit entitlements being compromised by the receipt of inheritance
• Potentially helps unmarried couples with Inheritance Tax planning.
Who Can Benefit from a Discretionary Trust Will?
Anyone who wishes to leave inheritance to:
Loved ones who lack the mental or physical capacity to look after their own affairs
Loved ones who have a disability and run the risk of having their state benefit entitlements compromised by the receipt of inheritance
Beneficiaries who are in a vulnerable position. e.g. someone with learning disabilities, undergoing a divorce, struggling financially.
Cost of Setting Up a Trust Will in England & Wales
