The answer varies depending on how complex your affairs are and if the firm is based in a city.
Here are some costs for a solicitor drawing up a will;
- A simple will can cost between £150 and £2,408. So, shopping around and finding someone good for the lower price could save you hundreds of pounds.
- A complex will can cost between £162 and £477. It might be more complex if you’ve been divorced and have children.
- For a specialist will that involves trusts or oversea properties, or you want tax planning advice, expect to pay a minimum of a few hundred pounds.
- A mirror will usually cost less than doing them individually. They’re worth considering if you and a spouse or partner want substantively the same (mirror) wills.
