Favourite colourWhere can you go to draw up a will or a Lasting Power of Attorney if you live in Calderdale or West Yorkshire? If you want to talk to someone who lives in the area, then Sally Helm at Valley Willwriting is the best person for you. I live in between Halifax and Hebden Bridge and I set up VALLEY WILLWRITING as I recognised that despite making a Will being one of the most important things you can do for your family & loved ones, at least 60% of us aren’t doing so. Wills are often ignored for a variety of reasons – people think they’re too young, they don’t like being reminded about death, they don’t think they have anything valuable to leave, or simply that they don’t need to make one because “it will all go to my wife/husband/Civil Partner/children/partner”.

VALLEY WILLWRITING can help you overcome these misconceptions and make life easier for your family & loved ones in the future. It need not be a painful or expensive experience. VALLEY WILLWRITING is a truly local service for Calderdale and West Yorkshire where I can come and visit you at home or a place and time of your choosing. I will take time to explain in plain English what a Will and LPAs are all about and how you can best prepare for the future security of your family & loved ones. I will encourage you to talk  about what you would like to happen to your money, property and possessions after you die and give you advice on how this can be arranged. If you have children, I can also advise on how they might be cared for by the appointment of guardians and making adequate financial provision for them.

You might think you have to consult a solicitor or a bank to make a Will. You don’t, but if you do go down that route, it can be costly and over-complicated. Professional, qualified willwriters are an excellent choice for making a Will as they have the knowledge and the time to take you through the process and explore options that are right for you as an individual. However, not all willwriters are the same. Many are unqualified & uninsured, and many try to sell you products that you might not need. I am a member of the Institute of Professional Willwriters which means I’ve passed formal examinations, undertake annual CPD, operate under a Code of Practice, have full professional indemnity insurance and am committed to providing the best service, at a reasonable cost, with details of fees stated at the outset.  I have a background in law and live with my family in the Calder Valley, West Yorkshire.

VALLEY WILLWRITING is all about ensuring peace of mind for you, your family and loved ones. I take care to ask you all the information necessary so I can draw up a Will that fits you, your family’s needs and your financial circumstances, and importantly, a Will that is compliant with the Law so there are no nasty surprises in the future.
