Which Will Service is Right For You?

It depends on your circumstances. An online Will can be a cost-effective and convenient option if you have an idea of how Wills work and your wishes are straightforward, for example if you plan to leave everything to your immediate family.

All our online Wills are reviewed by a Solicitor to give you added reassurance that yours is legally valid. If you choose our Online Advised Will service, they’ll also offer additional guidance to make sure that your Will is structured in the best way for you financially.

Some circumstances can make creating your Will more complicated, including:

  • Owning a foreign property
  • Having a blended family as beneficiaries i.e., step-children or similar
  • Owning other significant assets, like a company 

In these instances, you may need more detailed advice from a legal professional to make sure your wishes are followed in the most tax-efficient way. If this sounds like you then you may want to consider our Solicitor Drafted Will service, which can be fully tailored to your needs.

What Are the Benefits of Making an Online Will?

Our online Will-writing services offer an easy way to manage your estate and take care of loved ones when you’re no longer around. Key benefits include:

What Information Do I Need to Make a Will Online?

It can be helpful to get some key information together before you start to write a Will online. This could include:

  • Full names and addresses of your beneficiaries
  • Full names and addresses of all executors
  • Details of any charities you want to make a gift to
  • Details of guardians for your children and/or pets
  • Details of assets such as property, bank accounts and stocks and shares

Once you have all this information ready, you can quickly create a Will online through our secure Will-writing platform.

What if I Don’t Want to Make a Will Online?

If our online Will products don’t suit you or you'd prefer to speak to one of our specialist Wills Solicitors, you can use our Full Service Solicitor Drafted Will option. This involves making a telephone or video call appointment instead, or if you’d prefer to, an appointment in one of our offices. 

Online Wills Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a Will?

Whether online or offline, making a Will is an important step that you shouldn’t put off. This legally binding document effectively acts as a safeguard for your dying wishes, allowing you to control what happens to the money, possessions and property in your name.  

Breaking this down further, reasons to make a Will online include:

  • Having dependent children who you want to provide for financially and, if they’re under 18, who you’d want to nominate a legal guardian(s) for
  • Having loved ones or charities who you want to leave gifts for, including people who aren’t close relations or married to you
  • Owning an estate worth over £325,000, potentially leaving behind a sizeable inheritance tax bill if not planned for in a Will
  • Holding specific wishes for your funeral
  • Avoiding family disputes that may otherwise cause distress for those closest to you
What Happens if You Die Without a Will?

If you fail to leave behind a Will when you die in the UK, everything in your estate will be shared out in a strict way defined by what’s known as the law of intestacy. It’s possible that this won’t reflect how you’d like things to ideally be done.

For example, intestacy doesn’t recognise relationships outside of marriage. If you have a partner who you love dearly but aren’t married to at the time of your passing, they won’t have the right to inherit anything you leave behind. This could even mean they won’t be able to stay in your shared home in a worst-case scenario.

If you have children under 18, their legal guardian will be nominated by law rather than yourself. And if you die with no spouse, children or remaining blood relatives, your estate will automatically go to the monarchy instead of the other people or causes that you feel most passionately about.

All these outcomes can naturally create problems and distress for those who matter most. These problems can be easily avoided by creating an online Will.

Are Online Wills Legal?

Some worry that online Wills are not legally valid as they need to be witnessed by at least two people. But all you need to do is print yours off and have it witnessed and signed in the same way you would with a traditional Will.

To put your mind at ease, we’ll include clear instructions to make sure your Will is legally signed and witnessed when you get in touch.

There are other legal requirements that you’ll need to meet to create a Will online or offline. This includes being aged 18 or over and having the mental capacity to understand the extent of your estate and the consequences of making a Will.

How Much Does a Will Cost?

The amount you spend will vary depending on your needs and budget.

If your wishes are relatively simple, for example, our Online Checked service costs £99 (VAT Included) for a single online Will. For those with more complex needs, a single Solicitor Drafted Will costs £249. And if your husband, wife or partner has effectively identical wishes to you, our Mirror Wills cost less than creating two single Wills.

Whatever your preferences, we only offer fixed-price services with no ongoing costs. You will know exactly how much it costs to make your online Will before you go through with it.

Who Can Witness a Will?

A witness can be any person over the age of 18 who isn’t related to you and isn’t a beneficiary. This means they don’t stand to gain something from your Will. You’ll need two witnesses to make your online Will legally valid, just like you would with a traditional document.

What is an Executor of a Will?

An executor is someone who you nominate to carry out the wishes set out in your will. This role can include a wide range of responsibilities such as organising your funeral, valuing your assets and dealing with tax matters.

The executor for your online Will can be a friend, family member or Solicitor over the age of 18. What’s important is that they’re someone who you trust and who feels confident acting in this role.
