Make A Will Online

Our online Wills service makes it easier than ever to plan for the future and ensure that your loved ones are provided for when you’re gone. You can draft your Will at a time that suits you, without having to come into our offices. It’s simple, efficient, and stress-free.

Find out more below, or head straight to our online questionnaire to get started.

What’s The Process?

It’s very straightforward to use our online Wills service:

  1. Complete this online questionnaire. This covers basic questions about your property and assets and who you wish to leave them to.
  2. We’ll review your answers and get in touch if we need any more information from you.
  3. When we’re happy we’ve got everything we need, we’ll prepare a draft Will within 10 working days. You can contact us at any point to discuss any concerns or questions you have.
  4. Once you’re happy with the draft Will, we’ll send you an original to sign, along with detailed instructions on the signing process.
  5. After you’ve signed it in the presence of two witnesses, you can send it back to us for storage, or make your own arrangements.

It’s that simple – fill out the form, and we’ll do the rest. If we need to clarify any of your instructions, or think you need more detailed legal advice, we’ll get in touch to discuss it with you.

Why Should I Make A Will?

By writing down your wishes in an official Will, you can ensure your estate will be dealt with in the way you want after you die. Writing a Will enables you to:

  • Provide for your spouse, children and other loved ones
  • Make sure your property and assets are given to the people you want them to go to
  • Plan effectively to minimise inheritance tax and other taxes
  • Protect your assets for future generations
  • Nominate someone as executor to administer your estate

If you have children who are still minors, you can also appoint legal guardians for them in case something happens to you before they turn 18.

What Should I Put In My Will?

The details of everyone’s estate will be different, but the key things to consider are:

  • What property and assets do you own?
  • Who are your beneficiaries and what inheritance do you want to leave them?
  • Who will be the executor(s) of your estate?

If you’re worried about who would make decisions on your behalf if you lost mental capacity in later life, you might also want to think about making a Lasting Power of Attorney as part of your Will.

Head to our Wills Checklist page for more information about what to think about when making your Will.

Depending on the complexity of your estate, you may have other things you want to think about, such as business succession plans and minimising inheritance tax and other fees. If this is the case, we advise you speak to our team first to discuss your requirements – call us on 0370 1500 100 or fill out our online form and we’ll call you back.

How Much Does It Cost?

It costs £145 for a single Will and £195 for a ‘mirror’ Will for couples.

The cost may be higher if your estate is particularly large or your instructions are complicated. When we receive your questionnaire we’ll be able to see if your requirements are more complex than a standard Will. We’ll let you know in advance of any additional costs and you don’t have to go ahead with it if you don’t want to.

What’s Included?

With the online service you get:

  • A draft Will based on your instructions – you’ll be able to check you’re happy with it before we send out the final copy
  • A bound Will ready for signing – along with detailed instructions on how to sign
  • Knowledge and support from an expert team.

You can call us at any time during the process to discuss any questions you have. We also offer to store your Will in our specialist storage facility (at no extra cost for our Wills Assured customers).

What If I Want To Change My Will Later On?

Circumstances change, and people often need to amend their Wills. If you want to make changes or add a codicil (for a minor change or addition) at a later time, you can just let us know and we’ll update it.

This service isn’t included in the Online Wills rate and would be charged as a separate fee (usually from £80). If you’re a Wills Assured client, however, the service is free.

How Long Does It Take?

The online questionnaire should only take around 10 minutes. Once you’ve filled out the online questionnaire, we can send you a draft within 10 working days.

If we need to clarify anything or provide extra advice, it might take a bit longer – but we’ll be able to give a clear estimate once we receive your form.

Can You Store My Will?

Yes we can. If you are a Wills Assured client, this service comes free of charge.

It’s important that your Will is stored in a safe location, away from the risk of theft, fire or water damage. Our specialist storage facility ensures your Will is kept safe and secure and can be easily accessed after your death, giving you peace of mind and making things easier for your loved ones.
