We found the service of the representative very knowledgeable , helpful and clear. He was on hand any time to speak to on the phone, and to talk us through any questions when the documents came through. We felt secure talking with him about extremely personal information and he showed great patience when we did not understand areas as this was our first time drafting wills and LPA and as a married couple. I went through the coop as I had used them to handle our fathers estate. My experience of them handling this complicated situation was excellent and worth the money as my sister and I would never have been able to do the service they provided. This led me onto contacting them to arrange our wills and LPA with them as well. More...

After my husband passed away, I thought it was time to get my affairs in order, but hadn't a clue where to start. I contacted the Co-op and everyone I spoke to was courteous, patient, and extremely helpful. At such a traumatic time for me, made worse by this horrible virus, making everything near impossible for someone like me (not in the least tec savvy). I can't thank them enough. Highly recommended and much appreciated. More...

I found Daniel Tucker of Co-op estate planning extremely helpful, friendly and efficient. He de-mystified the process and his explanations were very helpful in making decisions how to plan. The only downside was once the will was completed there was quite a time lag and communication gap about how things were being progressed but I was really impressed at how Daniel was happy to step in and sort things out for us which gave us great peace of mind. Very impressed. More...

I wanted to make a Will for sometime now but was always worried about all the paperwork. But with the Co op friendly service and always on hand to talk to made me so comfortable and at ease. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Co op legal team for making my experience a Pleasant one. Very reasonable prices, I can rest ashore that I have put everything in place just in case. Thank you Co op. More...

Following a recommendation from our financial advisor we set off on a journey with the Co op to arrange power of attorney but the process has been anything but smooth. Even allowing for the covid effect it has been more difficult than we ever imagined and we have largely been left to our own devices to sort all the signature and the vagaries around the order things had to be done and dated.There has been contact from the Coop when money was due (even though this process is still not complete) but with hindsight we would not have bothered with or at least kicked it further down the road.A very complicated process with not enough support More...

My husband and I requested a Revocable Life Interest Trust Will with Co-op. It's clever and needs explaining in detail as well as requiring a lot of detail from us. The professional approach was really appreciated. My only criticism was the transition of this detail to the team that then did the actual drafting. However, they were responsive and easy to work with when it came to making the amendments. Overall a good service and open about the fixed cost. More...

Desperately poor service. Expensive, slow and inefficient. I paid £420 back in April (well over four months ago) for a deed of gift transferring our house from my sole ownership to joint ownership with my civil partner. We posted the signed & witnessed TR1 transfer form back to Coop Estate Planning on 20th June. Since then the only communication I’ve had (17th July) is to say “this has been checked and handed over to our property specialist”. My case handler doesn’t respond to emails, nor can I get through by phone. More...

I have used coop legal services in the past to sort out my dads will and I found them very helpful and efficient and having a fixed price was reassuring. ...you knew what the final cost would be. So we decided to update our wills and set up 4 LPAs during lock down. We were helped by Paul Hetherington to understand our options and what would work best for us via Skype. Questions were answered quickly by email. It was an easy service to use many thanks. More...

I would like to thank Glyn Williams, Estate Planning Consultant, for his professional and expert guidance when I embarked on making my will and other matters.

During our conversations Glyn raised many aspects which I had given no thought to and might have overlooked in different circumstances. He took time to find out what issues were of particular importance to me and provided guidance in these matters.

I now feel confident that my decisions are sound.

Glyn was friendly and informative. Conversation was easy and I was able to ask my questions and go over things so that I fully understood.

As we explored my situation Glyn introduced other relevant services offered by the Co-op, I was grateful for this and may access them in the future.

I would like to add that Glyn was exceptional in his response to my emails and questions, especially taking into account that we are working in the time of the Covid-19 pandemic with all the extra constraints that are placed upon us.

Thank you Glyn. Well deserved five stars plus.

Glyn was very knowledgeable and made the important task of us drawing up our Wills very easy. He gave us great advice and things to think about to make it easier to discharge our wishes on the basis that you have to make assumptions on asset values, for example. We are so glad to get this important task completed and Glyn made the process much easier than we expected and less stressful. Thank you Glyn! More...

I was advised by my family to action a power of attorney this I did. Also at the same time I decided I should up date my Will as my husband died least year. His funeral was arranged through your Funeral Care service in Newhaven and we were well looked after therefore decided that you we the best people to do this for me. We were helped with this by Julie Pullinger and both were completed to my complete satisfaction Thank you for your continued service More...

An easy, professional Will making experience. Due to lockdown, the appointment was online.

Writing a will was never at the top of my list, and I always had a feeling of reluctance (and dread) whenever the subject was raised. There’s probably a word for fear of writing one’s will, but when I did bite the bullet and contacted Co-op Legal Services I found the process comfortably easy and straightforward. Because of Covid-19 it was all done over the phone and email, but the guidance from the case handler was impressive, she was patient and led me through the process in simple language making sure I fully understood every step. A bit of a weight off the shoulders! Highly recommend this service. More...

Co-op Will and Funeral Service Our local Co-op Will writer in West Cumbria kindly provided a prompt and efficient service just before covid lockdown as I was aware my Will was well out of date and I had recently developed an illness that put me at significant risk if I caught covid 19. He was very helpful and expedited the Will process so that I was able to sign within a week. I also arranged Funeral plan to make life easier for my family in case I need one. Thanks for the efficient service. More...

We had very old wills that needed to be updated and we had heard about trust wills so we contacted the coop who talked us all through it over the phone as this has been during the corona lockdown. Very patient Julie answered all our questions no rush whatsoever ever. We had a few queries once we got the draft copies by email but that again was sorted very easily over the phone. Overall the whole process was very easy and very reasonable compared to what we had been told by other people. Would thoroughly recommend them . More...

Had a will, 40 years old and could not find so investigated various options around. Selected the Co-op as I had been a member for some time and felt that they were very honourable. Due to corona virus it was done by e-mail and phone and all contacts made it very simple and straightforward. We ended up with exactly what we wanted with very little stress or pressure. Cost was good and the service throughout was friendly and effecient. Generally used emails rather than calls as everything was recorded. Many other services were offered in addition to basic wills but no pressure to take up.I do recommend this service highly. More...

I used Co-op estate planning to write a new will. It was so easy and it was done at home with a qualified will writer who explained every step of will writing. I also set up a trust fund for my daughter following her advice. I now feel pleased that my affairs are now in order and my family will have no worries when the inevitable happens. More...

Co-op Estate Planning handled my Will with great expertise; the advisor that visited my home was friendly, efficient and very professional. The Will writing stage happened during the Coronavirus lockdown so this was done safely over the phone with the same advisor continuing their pleasant approach with fantastic attention to detail.Finally, the whole process was easy and straightforward and the fixed fee price was very reasonable. I would highly recommend Co-Op Estate Planning. More...

We needed to update our wills having moved house and made a lot of changes to our savings and investment strategy. We also had very complex wills and trusts done by a previous estate planning company who wanted to charge us a whole lot of money to update them. Gethin Morgan, on behalf of Co-op Estate Planning, offered a much simpler, understandable and cost-effective approach. Despite all the paperwork having to be drawn up during the Coronavirus lockdown, the task was carried out efficiently and simply. More...

She was able to explain these options in a simple manner which made it easy for us to understand and has worked with us to put together a will which covers all our wishes.

Single and Mirror Will are simple wills leaving everything to your partner or spouse, and then to your children or others that you choose. Having a will makes it much easier for your family to sort out things.

Trust wills are for couples who want to protect what they have when they pass away, so that whatever happens to the survivor, their half goes to the children. This will protects against Care funding and Disinheritance which can happen in a simple will.
This sort of will is also recommended for couples who have children from previous relationships

As we are all living longer, you need to ask yourself - what would happen if I had a sudden illness and I couldn't look after my affairs?
A Lasting Power of Attorney ensures for example that your spouse or children can look after your finances, and you keep decision making about you within the family rather than handing it over to a stranger

Are you concerned that someone who you live with might have no home to live in when you die? Add a Right of Residence to a will to make sure this doesn't happen.

Tax is complicated to understand. Find out more about if you have any liability to inheritance tax when you pass away, and understand how to reduce this.
