About Our Site

TheWillExpert was formed to offer a unique reference point on making a will and being an executor.

Writing a will is a task that many of us would prefer to put off. A large number of people fail to write this important document at all, leaving our estate at the mercy of the taxman.

Many people avoid writing their will simply because they do not know how. TheWillExpert was established to tackle this problem.

On TheWillExpert you will find guides on every aspect of will writing, intestacy, and inheritance. Whether you wish to write a will for the first time or you want to know how to deal with the probate process, TheWillExpert has the information you need.

Inheritance tax is a major worry for many people writing a will, so we have also compiled a series of articles dedicated to the topic. TheWillExpert can help you understand inheritance tax, and provide you with the knowledge you need to avoid it.

We also understand that the time surrounding a death of a loved one can be very difficult. So you will also find information on coping with loss and dealing with the process of bereavement.

All of our articles are written by experts in their field. It is important to remember, though, that nothing on TheWillExpert constitutes advice. You should always seek professional assistance before taking action.

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.

Our Background

TheWillExpert was founded by John Rowlinson, the founder of PtS.

John, through PtS, is involved in a number of ventures including software and property companies. A percentage of revenue from these activities goes towards funding TheWillExpert and a number of similar sites.

Our focus is simply on having experts create the highest quality information possible that is widely read.
