How it works.

Making a will does not have to be a long, complicated and expensive process. We offer an affordable, quick and stress-free experience. We can write your will following either a face-to-face meeting or a telephone call.

"When I decided I needed to write a will I naturally turned to Charlton Baker as being our trusted accountants and advisors they know myself and my family well. The service was excellent and revealed some points to consider that were not immediately obvious." James S, Wiltshire.

What information will I need?


In order to write your will, we need the following information:

  • Personal details: full name, address, date of birth, dependents, relationship status.
  • Your Estate: your estate consists of all the property you own or control for example, property, cash, monies, cryptoassets, jewellery, life insurance, businesses. It also includes any liabilities you may have, for example mortgages, loans etc.
  • Executors/Trustees: the person(s) responsible and trusted to manage your estate.
  • Guardians: the person(s) who would be responsible for any of your children under the age of 18.
  • Beneficiaries: the person or group of people who will benefit from your estate.
  • Your wishes: ranging from specific gifts you would like to make in your will, to provisions for pets, to funeral wishes.

How long will it take?

The appointment, whether that is a face-to-face meeting or telephone call, can be booked at a convenient time for you and will take as little as 30 minutes. Following the appointment, you will be sent your draft will within 7 working days.

How much will it cost?

Our standard fee for a single will starts from just £295 plus VAT and for joint mirror wills from £450 plus VAT for both wills. 

“ A very efficient, cost effective alternative to a law firm. Helpful advice to get the wills executed in ten days. Highly recommended”
