Will writing originated in Ancient Greece. It is perhaps, therefore, surprising that around 60% of people in the UK do not have a will, including 68% of those aged 30- 35 and 41% of those aged 50-59! Despite best effort by a number of bodies, this number is actually rising (at a rate of 6% per year), and the opportunity for will writers, expanding in consequence.
The lack of a will (or a poorly written one) may prove catastrophic. There were 8,000 attempts to block wills in 2017, with an estimated cost of £150k associated with each court challenge. £5.4bn was paid in inheritance tax in 2019 and many people died intestate, with assets reverting to the Crown in many cases. Growth in the market for will writing services shows no sign of abating, indeed a doubling was noted during the recent Covid-19 Pandemic. Add to this demand for high value ancillary services, such as Lasting Powers of Attorney, for which demand has doubled in the last three years, and the magnitude of the opportunity becomes clear.
