    We are a couple in our 30's and was wondering what the best way to get a will is, we don't mind paying for it but as we have a child think it is important to have for each other and also for our daughter

    Go to a solicitor not a wil writer and under no circumstances try to DIY. Ask around for personal recommendations. Also remember that wills need to be reviewed from time to time as circumstances change.

    Free Will writing via trade union
    I was able to have the wills of my wife and myself drawn up for nothing. It is one of the member benefits of being in Unite. I expect that other unions also offer this. Have a look on their website.

    My will was written by a solicitor and he also stores the will. He is also the sole executor.
    My question is: how will he know that I have died?
    I have no family or friends (don't worry - I'm ok and happy!).
    So, when I die - who will inform the solicitor to get things rolling?

    It depends how on the ball your solicitor is.

    Some will check the unclaimed estates list for their clients.

    Otherwise, all you can really do is tell a neighbour and ask them to inform the solicitor when the time comes.
