Will Writing Services
Writing a will is one of the most important duties you will ever perform. A valid will allows you to make provision for your family, appoint executors to carry out your wishes and record specific wishes, including making gifts to friends, relatives and charities. Our will writing services in Norfolk help you get it right.
It’s important to note that if you do not make a will, your estate will be divided as the law dictates, which may not be in line with your wishes.
How we can help
Making a will with Hatch Brenner couldn’t be simpler. We will arrange an appointment for you to see one of our experienced will writing solicitors in Norwich so you can discuss your circumstances and requirements. Alternatively, complete our Will Questionnaire.
To get started, we will discuss the following with you:
- The appointment of executors and guardians
- Any gifts of specific items
- Leaving legacies to family members, friends or charity
- What is to happen to the balance of your estate
- Whether there is a need or benefit of including a trust arrangement
- Any tax consequences
- If anything can be done to safeguard the estate against the payment of care fees
Once we receive your instructions, we will prepare a draft will. You can consider and feedback on the document, before approving the final version. The process will be complete when the will has been properly signed. We offer a free storage service for all wills we have prepared.
Most wills are prepared on a fixed-fee basis so you know the costs involved at the outset. We can also arrange home visits for a small additional cost if you are unable to visit our Norwich office.
You will find our Will Questionnaire at the link below. It provides a useful guide to the information we need to discuss before drafting your will. The editable version can be completed electronically and submitted via email, or you can print it off and bring a hard copy to your appointment.

‘The making of wills is a complicated and personal matter, more so when like ours there are family issues, but we were put at ease straight away and our wishes and thoughts regarding our wills were dealt with sympathetically and very efficiently. We will, if we need to use solicitors again, use Hatch Brenner. Thank you.’
‘We found the service to be most helpful and informative from our very first call to the firm and it was the follow up phone call which had just the right tone that persuaded us to give our business to Hatch Brenner. We consulted the firm about revising our Wills and we were delighted with the excellent support which we received from Caroline Billings. She was friendly, approachable, gave very clear explanations and communicated most promptly and informatively at all times. We would highly recommend using Caroline and Hatch Brenner.’
