The UK's Most Established and Trusted Will Writing Service

Since 2001, LegalWills.co.uk has helped thousands of people prepare their Last Will and Testament.

Developed with a team of top estate planning solicitors, we offer unparalleled quality and affordability through our online Will service.

The Company

LegalWills.co.uk is the longest serving online Will writing service in the UK. We work with professional Will writing solicitors to provide a legal document creation service that allows you to prepare your own professional grade Wills and other estate planning documents.

At LegalWills.co.uk, we have adapted the best Will writing software used by solicitors across the UK and made it available to the general public. This means that you can create a Will that is word for word the same as a solicitor's Will, but from the comfort of your own home. You can also make changes whenever you need to.

Formed in 2000, the company has a dedicated team devoted to ensuring high quality products and first class customer service. Our focus has always been to make expensive and inconvenient legal services readily available to everybody, by harnessing the power of the Internet.

Over the years, we have built our portfolio of services to move beyond simple Will writing. Today, we offer Executor tools, digital asset storage and distribution, asset inventories, and our proprietary Keyholder® mechanism that ensures the right information gets to the right people at the right time.

We believe that after a decade of constant improvement, we now provide a service that not only surpasses traditional do-it-yourself Will kits, but also offers significant advantages to professional Will writers and solicitors.

Your documents can be stored securely, and updated whenever there is a change to your personal or financial situation.
