How does the will-writing process work?

Before you start the will writing process you should have the name and address of anyone you intend to name in the document. Postcodes are useful too, but not essential. You will be sent a link by email in case you need to come back at a later date to complete the will.

  1. 1. Fill in your information securely



    At the start of the secure online questionnaire, you will be asked to provide your address and contact details. These are strictly private and are used a) for production of the document b) to allow you to login if you don't complete your will in a single session c) to send the completed document (via email). You can find our data handling policy here.


    You then answer a series of questions about who you want to manage your estate, who you would like to look after your children (if you have any), who you would like to inherit your possessions and any conditions you wish to attach.

  2. 2. Review, confirm and pay



    At the end of the questionnaire, you will be presented with a summary of the information you have entered and have the opportunity to go back and make any amendments you wish.


    You then make a secure payment of £29.50 (single will) or £39.50 (pair of wills) - you can pay by credit/debit card or via a PayPal account if you have one.

  3. 3. Receive your will, sign and witness



    Once the secure payment has been made, the will document will be emailed to you at the email address you provided, along with detailed instructions for making the will legal and receipt for payment. Shortly afterwards, a solicitor will check the document to make sure that everything is in order. If anything is unclear, a member of our team will contact you by email.

    You can choose to receive a printed version of your will by post for just £9.50 per document.

Once these stages are complete, you have a fully legal last will and testament.

Validity

Our wills are valid for property held in England and Wales. If you have property overseas, you should check local laws and, if necessary, create a separate document to cover the foreign property.

Legal Tech Experts Set New “Gold Standard” for Affordable Online Wills



More than half of the adults in the UK don’t have a will: leading to family heartbreak, arguments, and extra costs. With new probate fees of up to £6,000 imminent in April 2019 estate planning has never been more important.

Legal Tech firm makeawillonline.co.uk breaks down barriers for access to top quality legal advice.  Qualified solicitors are on tap for customers making affordable online wills.  Solicitor-checked wills represent a new level of quality, affordability and peace of mind for customers and their loved ones.

Solicitors represent the “gold standard” for legal advice in the UK.  Previously, solicitors could only provide advice through a Solicitor’s Firm, meaning clients had to book appointments (usually in person), and incur bills to write a will: often of many hundreds of pounds. 

Makeawillonline.co.uk has set the standard for online wills since it launched ten years ago.  This month the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) approved a scheme to allow makeawillonline.co.uk to hire qualified Solicitors to check wills made by its customers.  It joins a select handful of businesses in the UK allowed to offer the services of its solicitors to the public.  It is the only one to specialise in making online wills.

Director Alex Hammond says: “We’re delighted to break down the barriers to quality legal advice for the public.  We set up ten years ago to make sure nobody need die without a will.  The SRA recognises quality of service we already provide.  Now our customers have the peace of mind that their wills are checked by a solicitor.  All our customers have the highest quality advice and support on tap.

Makeawillonline.co.uk’s first solicitor Oliver Asha says: “All solicitors benefit from intense training: at university, law school, as a trainee solicitor and extensive post qualification training.  Bringing this to the public via an easy to use online platform is a truly ground-breaking innovation.  We are looking forward to a new era of innovation and democratising legal services.”

Note to editors:

Founded in 2008, makeawillonline.co.uk is one of the UK’s longest established online will-writing services. Parent company Digilegal Ltd wants to democratise legal services by ensuring that everyone in England and Wales who needs a last will and testament has access to an affordable wills service, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Do you need a new will when you separate from a partner?



Short answer: probably

Divorce or dissolution of civil partnership does not automatically revoke your will like getting married does. If you divorce or dissolve your civil partnership after your will is made, any reference to your former spouse or civil partner will be treated as if he or she had died on the day that the decree absolute or final dissolution order was made. You should seek legal advice in those circumstances.

If you are still married or in a civil partnership with the other person, unless you want your estate to pass to the person from whom you are separated, a new will is the only way to ensure your wishes are fulfilled. Here are two examples:

Without a will

Bob and Julie have been married for five years and have two children. Julie leaves Bob and the children and moves in with Terry. Bob has not yet started divorce proceedings when he dies without a legally valid last will and testament.

Julie would still be first in line to inherit Jack’s money and property according to intestacy laws. Bob could have prevented this by writing and executing a will.

With an out-of-date will

Andy and Mark wrote mirror wills leaving everything to each other after entering a civil partnership. They have since separated and are living with other partners but have not re-written or revoked their wills.

Until the civil partnership is officially dissolved, the wills are still valid: Andy’s possessions would go to Mark and vice versa.

Keep your will up to date

It is important to update your will or create a new will whenever your circumstances chance, for example getting married or entering a civil partnership, getting divorced or dissolving a civil partnership, or when you have children.

 

Wills for British ex-pats



A will from this site will be fully legal in England and Wales, but the situation becomes more complicated if you are domiciled in the UK but resident abroad. Different countries deal with the probate process differently and you should consult an expert on local law in the country in which you live.
