We had a look around the online market and saw many different sites. Some were very poor, some were much better, but there wasn't one we could find that we thought combined user friendliness, an appropriate level of detail and the right price.
Leeds, England (PRWEB) June 27, 2011
Statistics have shown that over half of the population die without making a Will. One leading law firm has encountered the problems that dying without a Will, or without a valid will, can cause and has developed a unique will service which makes writing a legal will quickly and easily online.
Q-Will; the quick, quality online will service from Leeds law firm Ford & Warren Solicitors, launched this week as a direct response to the failings of so-called 'DIY' wills. Peter McWilliams, Senior Partner at Ford & Warren Solicitors, explains, “The decision to develop an online will capability was driven by our becoming more frequently consulted by those having to deal with the loss of a loved one, and the aggravation caused by ‘do it yourself’ wills; which often do not have the legal effect originally intended.”
“We had a look around the online market and saw many different sites. Some were very poor, some were much better, but there wasn't one we could find that we thought combined user friendliness, an appropriate level of detail and the right price," McWilliams further explains. “We set out to design and develop our own site and, because we designed the site ourselves we don't have to pay any software fees per will; this allows us to pass that saving on to our customers.“
Ben Lowe, Head of Probate at Ford & Warren has seen firsthand the distress that dying without a will can cause, he said, “If a person dies without making a will then their money and belongings will be distributed in accordance with the Rules of Intestacy – in other words the government will decide where their money goes to. Family disputes can often arise when this happens and add extra stress to an already distressing time.” Lowe states, “A common myth that unmarried cohabiting couples have is that their money or assets will automatically transfer upon death, but this is not the case. Making a Will is the only way to ensure that your exact wishes are carried out upon your death.”
Online will sites offer an easy way to write a Will without having to see a solicitor and within the privacy of their own home. Q-Will provides clear guidance notes at each step and offers the unique support of a full service law firm just a phone call away.
Q-Will is currently offering their standard 'Gold Package Will' at an introductory price of just £24 (using promotional code: FFPMC333), this rises to just £36 when the introductory offer finishes at the end of July. Writing a Will takes as little as 15 minutes. To get started or for more information and guidance visit http://www.quickonlinewills.com.
