With more and more online Will providers appearing on the web this has become a common question. It is perfectly ok to use a Will writing website, not only will it be more convenient (after all you don’t even need to leave your own home) but in most cases it is also a lot cheaper than visiting your local solicitor.

However, as with anything that you purchase online it is worth ensuring that the website you would like to use is of course genuine and in this instance offers Wills that are underwritten by a team of solicitors. It is also very important that you check that the website offers Wills under your constituent law. So, if you live in Scotland with assets in Scotland you must make a scottish Will, and if you live in England or Wales you must ensure that the service you use offers Wills under english and welsh law.
