    Is there a cheap legal way to do this or is it a visit a solicitor jobbie with yet more sacks of cash.

    Just doing wills for myself and the wife with a local solicitor and for two basic wills (if I die first she gets everything and vica versa, and if we both die it goes into a trust setup for the kids), I think we were quoted around £140. And they will even hold the wills for us too at no extra charge..

    Worth it IMO, as they are then correct and binding as opposed to the DIY ones which I guess you will never be sure.

    Just found this site which covers the basics:

    Maybe you can find a solicitor that will verify the validity of a will for much less than actually writing it.

    Cheers

    There are loads of will writing franchises but if your estate is complex (ie more than give it all catshome) then a local solicitor is your best bet just ring a few and ask for a price.
