The Southwest of England has many experienced Estate Planners, including diverse Will Writers in Exeter. How can you choose one that is a good fit for you and your family?
When it comes to Estate Planning in Devon and Cornwall, there are many factors to consider so that your legacy is protected. You may be asking questions like, “Do I need to use a nationally recognised law firm, or will a local company do just as well?”
There are many options available to ensure your wishes are carried out should you pass away. Some people may consider using a self-help kit to save costs, and write their own Will. Or they may opt for a quick online service. These options may be cheaper, but don’t necessarily deliver a legal document you can rely upon.
Others will understand the importance of employing the services of a professional Estate Planner. Will Writers in Exeter could be individuals who just cover the city, while others are companies or law firms that serve the entire Southwest. Some may expect you to visit their office in the city while others are happy to meet with you in your home.
There are Will Writers in Exeter who focus entirely on Wills, while other Estate Planners in Devon also provide Trusts, Lasting Power of Attorney (LPAs) as well as a full list of Probate Services. At the end of the day your choice of Will Writer is up to you and your specific requirements.
At Simon Hall Will Writing Services we offer all these services across the entire region. “Of course, there are always people who extoll the virtues of how you can do it yourself,” says Simon Hall, who founded the company in 2019. “You can listen to anyone you like down at the pub, but it’s better to trust the professionals who have an in-depth understanding of Estate Planning and how it is interconnected.
“Fortunately, when it comes to Will Writers in Exeter or across our region, we have several experts in this city who are at the top of their game and can save you money in the long term as well as a lot of stress.”

“So how does one find Will Writers in Exeter that can be trusted to deliver?” We asked Simon for his thoughts seeing he has written about the motivations behind such a career choice. (See ‘Who would choose to be a Will Writer?)
“Obviously you can start out by googling ‘Exeter Will Writers’ or ‘Will Writers in Exeter’ or similar, but then it’s a matter of personal choice. Dependent on whether you prefer an individual, local company, or team of solicitors. You also need to ensure they meet all your requirements. i.e. you may also need an LPA or someone to handle the Deceased Estate.
“Important factors to consider are legal knowledge, expertise, and attention to detail. Good communication skills are necessary to explain complex concepts in easy-to-understand terms. Empathy is essential when you are dealing with sensitive issues such as End-of-Life Care, inheritance, and family dynamics. And this cannot be delivered without a reputable, professional service that embraces the highest ethics.
“In spite of these things, cost is often a deciding factor in this economic climate. We are often asked ‘What is the cost of a Will in Exeter‘ and that is why we publish this information online. I personally think more Will Writers in Exeter should be transparent about their fees.
“At the end of the day it’s a matter of personal choice, however I recommend you use a family business that is well rooted in the community, has good local knowledge, and provides excellent value for money. Check to see if they are allied to a regulatory body, whether they have been professionally recognised and check out their reviews and you can’t go wrong.”
