These seem to get good reviews:
Making a will with our expertise is easy - Which?
i have contacted several will-making/PowerOfAttorney producing companies and solicitors for quotes. The "will writers" are just not upfront with their fees and they dont explain who is responsible for doing what after you instruct them. The POA form is a complex affair with paperwork going to and fro and to and fro and then fees to be paid to the Office of the Public Guardian in addition
The costs to write my will and 2 Powers of Attorney documents vary from nearly £2000 to £400.
can anyone recommend a good will-writing company preferably in the south west please ...... thank you

This link explains the options Making a will: free or cheap will writing - MoneySavingExpert
We had our wills done under the charity scheme, whereby you pay nothing but are expected (but not obliged) to leave a bequest to the charity concerned.
Im sure ours cost about £150 with a well know reputable Solicitors in Darlington but I seem to remember when going through the Power of Attorney procedure with my mothers estate it took for ever (a different firm sadly) and she was dead before they got it sorted so maybe it costs more I dunno.
we normally use chubb bullied by the market cross in somerton for legal bits and bobs, theres also another legal bod in the triangle just up from the post office, though theyre moving into the cellar in the brunel precinct sometime in july.
One of those times to go to the professional imo. That is, a neighbourhood recommended
long established local solicitor. Of course they charge a fee, but they can be quite reasonable
£200 or less if kept simple. Some even have a "free" Will Making session every year, they
probably hope to be made Executors.
