As few as only 36% of UK adults have a will: Headline insight from the recent IRN Legal Wills and Probate Consumer report.

These reports do come and go but they can help keep up with evolving trends and shifting preferences of consumers in the will writing market. Whilst the research established that those with a will in place remains below the 50% mark, there are a few other surprising trends, such as:

➡️ A dip in solicitor usage, particularly among younger demographics.

➡️ Over one in ten are writing their own wills (or at least attempting to)

➡️ Want to know what the typical cost of a will is? The research found that this was £125
