Traditional Wills are a straightforward, cost-effective way forward
Our Traditional Wills are modern, efficient documents which enable you to deal with your estate in a straightforward way, so that your assets are directly inherited by the people of your choice.
This works very well if you have a modest estate and straightforward wishes, and don’t feel the need to take the protective measures that are central to the Family Trust Will.
With a Traditional Will, you can: -
Appoint the right people to administer your affairs after you have passed away – your Executors;
Appoint the right people to bring up your children if they are orphaned before they reach adulthood – your Testamentary Guardians.
Pass your assets into the direct ownership of your chosen heirs – making Absolute Legacies.
However, this probably won’t be the right kind of Will for you if are concerned about: -
Care home fees in later life;
The risk of your estate being diverted to your children’s stepparent if you die first and your other half remarries;
Divorce-proofing or debt-proofing your child’s inheritance;
Providing equitably for your blended family.
If you have concern about any of these issues, a Family Trust is likely to be the right solution.
The cost of a Traditional Will is £300 if you are single and £440 if you are a couple.
Traditional Wills are included with our Budget and Budget Plus Estate Plans.

"I am a retired divorcee with a complicated family situation. Allowing my estate to be distributed in line with to the intestacy rules when I am gone would not have been a fair reflection of my wishes, so I knew it was vital that I make a will. I wanted to ensure that particular members of my family were provided for. I also have a child who is self-employed, and I was worried about providing for her in case her business failed and her inheritance was seized by the Insolvency Service. Will Written have created an estate plan for me that places my assets into a trust when I am gone, so that the trustees can manage my assets and keep them in the family."
