Wills

Planning for your future with RCN Law

Whether you need help with Will writing, Probate, Lasting Power of Attorney (LPAs) or Trusts, RCN Law can help.  Not only are our services available to members, but to members' families and friends too.   

RCN Wills

We spend our lives working to support ourselves and our loved ones, yet 57% of us do not have a Will.

It’s easier than you may think and as an RCN member you have direct access to RCN Law whose expert team of legal professionals are available to guide you through the process, providing you with the peace of mind that your wishes are clearly set out for the future.

Drafting a Will is important as:

  • You can ensure that your personal assets (no matter how big or small) are passed to the people you want, instead of shared out as the law defines;
  • You can choose who you would like to be in charge of following the instructions you leave in your Will.
  • Your family will have one less thing to worry about.

RCN Law provides a fast, efficient and friendly service at a discounted rate for RCN members and very competitive rates for your family and friends. 

Fees vary depending on the complexity of the documents and the size of the estate, but start at:

  • Single Will from £80 for RCN members (£90 for non-members) plus VAT
  • Joint Will from £100 for RCN members (£110 non-members) plus VAT

Your fee includes:

  • a telephone conversation with one of our legal experts
  • detailed legal advice to ensure the Will meets your needs
  • Will drafting plus written advice and instructions
  • free secure storage of your new Will

When should I make a will?

If you have family, property, savings, insurance policies or personal belongings you should create a Will, but there are some key milestones when you should take the time to consider one:

Recently married?

It can be easy to forget the importance of putting in place or updating your Will amongst the excitement of getting married. Contact RCN Law today to ensure your personal assets will be distributed how you want.

Bought a new house?

Moving house can be stressful, but planning for yours and your family’s future doesn’t have to be. RCN Law’s team can expertly guide you through the process of creating/updating your Will.

Had children?

With new additions to your family, you’ll want to ensure that they will be looked after. We can assist in creating your Will to appoint guardians, set up Trusts and specify the chosen age of inheritance.

In an unmarried cohabiting couple?

If you’re not married, your partner isn’t legally entitled to anything if you die, meaning your assets would go directly to your closest living relative. Make sure you’re wishes are clearly set out by contacting RCN Law today.

Nearing retirement?

If you’re getting your finances in order before you retire, now is the time to make or update your Will. Our experienced team are here to help, creating a bespoke Will for your future.
