Updating Your Will

To discuss your requirements with one of our helpful team, please fill in the short form below, or call the Updating Line on 020 8380 0326 between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday.

Alternatively, you can find the procedure for both Lifetime Clients and non Lifetime Clients to update their Wills below.

Updating your Will for Lifetime Clients

  • Write your amendments directly onto the copy Wills that we sent you for your records.
  • If adding new people, we require full names and relationships, eg ‘John Howard Smith, brother.’ If changing or adding an Executor or Trustee, we require the same, plus their address.
  • Sign each page of the copy Wills.
  • Include a photocopy of one form of ID for each of you, eg driving licence or passport.
  • Send the amended copy Wills and ID to Legal Dept, WSL Ltd, 154 High Street, Brentford, TW8 8JA
  • Upon receipt we will update your Wills and send new Wills to you for signing and witnessing.

Updating your Will for Non-Lifetime Clients

  • The charge for updating a single Will is £135, and two ‘mirror’ Wills is £180, including VAT.
  • Write your amendments clearly onto photocopies of your Wills. Do not mark your original Wills in any way, as this will invalidate them.
  • If adding new people, we require full names and relationships, eg ‘John Howard Smith, brother.’ If changing or adding an Executor or Trustee, we require the same, plus their address.
  • Sign each page of the photocopied Wills.
  • Include a photocopy of one form of ID for each of you, eg driving licence or passport.
  • Send the photocopied Wills, ID and cheque made out to WSL Ltd to Legal Dept, WSL Ltd, 154 High Street, Brentford, TW8 8JA
  • Upon receipt we will update your Wills and send new Wills to you for signing and witnessing.

Of course, you may decide that it would be beneficial for you to become Lifetime Clients. There are three different types of Lifetime Service package available, as follows:

Essential Lifetime Service (Storage and updates) 
Storage of your Wills and any other paper documents (eg house deeds, policy documents, certificates etc), plus unlimited free updates of your Wills during your lifetimes, including all associated legal advice.

Classic Lifetime Service (Storage, updates and Executor assistance)
Storage and updates as above, plus free assistance for your Executors, enabling them to put your Wills through probate so that they do not have to turn to a solicitor. WSL will also be available to assist in up to two further estates requiring probate per Lifetime Member, where the deceased is an immediate family member and a valid Will is in place.

Premier Lifetime Service (Storage, updates and Estate administration) 
Storage, updates and assistance for your Executors, however if your Executors feel unable to manage, we will fully administer your estate and obtain the Grant of Probate, at the guaranteed fee of no more than 1% of the value of your estate.

For each of these services, we would write to your Executors to inform them that they have been appointed as an Executor by you, where your Wills are being stored, the procedure for releasing your Wills when required, and providing them with detailed information regarding their duties.

“Very professional and helpful, pleased”Arianna Wills, London
“I am just about to start filling in the probate forms and I thought I would send you a quick mail to say thank you for the wonderful service and help that you have provided us. I met with Radhika and Zafna on Monday and I can say without doubt that they far exceeded my expectations, so much so that I felt the need to write this email to you today. Not only did they print out the necessary forms and letters for me, but they were able to understand the intricacies of my situation and resolve uncertainties with HMRC there and then. It looks like you have a couple of able deputies who are able to give clients the reassurance and advice that they are looking for in a professional and kind manner. My sister and I will certainly be using your company going forward for our own will needs, and I can confidently say that I would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone seeking will writing and related services.”Dan Sivagnanaretnam, London
“We’d been thinking about it for ages and then decided we really must get it sorted. I found your company on-line but looked at a number of different companies before choosing WSL. What made me choose you was the large amount of positive feedback you had on your website. When I called your office the girl who took me through everything was very helpful and quickly offered a date that was convenient. The consultant who came round really put us at our ease and I have absolutely no complaints - nothing bad to say at all. We thought what we wanted to put in the Will was a bit unusual but the consultant said it was no problem at all and took us through everything step by step. ”Mr Howland, High Wycombe
