Could you make your own will?
The simple answer is ‘yes’. However, more importantly, should you?
Wills & Probate specialist Sue Darlington at Bromleys Solicitors LLP says:
“In my 20 years’ experience I can recall seeing less than a handful of ‘do-it-yourself’ wills which are problem-free.
Most do not do what they are supposed to, by reason that the wrong legal words and phrases have been used. Many are not valid because the formal requirements about signing have not been met.
Wills made through solicitors are tailored to suit individual requirements and advice will be given about various options to help you plan for the future.
Our advice is to always consult a professional who has the training and experience to ensure your wishes are followed and your will, if challenged, is as watertight as possible.”
