Where There's a Will

Do you know how many people in the UK do not have a Will?

Making a Will, Uncategorized, Wills


We know from regular surveys that between 55-60% of the UK population have not made a Will. And, this begs the question of why do people not have a Will?

There are so many myths around not making a Will:

  • “It’s expensive”
  • “It’s complicated”
  • “It will cause issues in my family”
  • “I haven’t got time”
  • “I thought it was something you did when you got older”
  • “I don’t have an estate or savings so I don’t need one”
  • “I’m married so it will all go to my wife anyway”


Why do the other 40% of people HAVE a Will?

  • Wills are normally quite straightforward to make
  • Wills are very cost effective
  • Peace of mind that your estate goes to those you wish (this may not happen without a Will).
  • Making sure your family and loved ones are looked after
  • A single Will at Fidler & Pepper is very cost effective at £115 (plus VAT) or £160 (plus VAT) for a pair of Wills.


We know people are busy!
People don’t want to think about dying when you are busy living and people have so much on their to-do list. From experience I think that finding the time is a strong reason why people are putting off making a Will so we’ve added a new service where you can make a Will using a video call such as Skype or Facetime. We use video calls for Will appointments because it still allows us to have a face to face meeting about sensitive or confidential information that will be included in your Will. We understand that you’ll also want to see someone to understand how it all works to give you peace of mind.

How would this work for you?
So maybe you have half an hour in your lunch break or you’re lucky enough to start work at 10am?  You could be a school teacher who would love an appointment at 4 or 4.30pm? When using Skype or Facetime you don’t have to travel anywhere and the call and video appointment is completely free.

What you have to do next!
Just contact us to make an appointment by emailing rhoward@fidler.co.uk or calling 01623 448 318. At your appointment time you simply log into Skype or Facetime and we will help you through the process. If you’d like to meet with us face to face in one of our offices simply call us and we can arrange that.

Many thanks,
Richard Howard, Partner and Head of the Private Client Department (We offer Wills, Probate, Trusts, Powers of Attorney and much more!).
