You can make a Will without the services of a solicitor. Some stationery shops sell do-it-yourself Wills but while you may think you are saving time and money you may be leaving complications for your beneficiaries. Do-it-yourself Wills generally cause difficulty. They can be badly drafted or worded. You may not sign it properly or have it witnessed in the correct manner. They do not explain the best manner to avoid challenges by disappointed children nor the best manner to reduce the Inheritance Tax liability. Sometimes these Wills end up in court. If your Do-it-yourself Will is declared invalid you will be deemed to have died intestate.
