Advantages of a Guardian Angel online will

Protect your loved ones

A Guardian Angel online will allows you to select a guardian for children and pets, and set wishes in place for after you are gone.

Choose your inheritors

A person who dies without a will is called intestate. If this happens the government decide how your assets will be divided.

Leave keepsakes

After you’re gone, your loved ones will treasure the things that remind them of you. Decide who receives what and leave them a loving message.

Donate to charity

This is a growing desire, and very easy to do in our will. Choose a charity, and leave them some money or a percentage of your estate.

We're here for you, and can help any time.

FAQs on making an online will

Is it legal and safe to make an online will in the UK?

Yes, it is completely legal and safe to make an online will. Our online will service creates a valid and binding will. However, as with any will in the UK, you must meet the usual requirements (online or otherwise):

  • For a will to be valid you must be over the age of 18.
  • Your online will must be written voluntarily. A will that you have been coerced or forced into making doesn’t count. If you are feeling pressured, give us a call.
  • An online will is only valid if you are of sound mind. In law, this is called having 'mental capacity'. In other words, this is the ability to make rational and well thought-through choices.
  • The will is written which includes being printed off. Oral wills are not valid, as they can be misinterpreted.
  • When a will is signed there must be two witnesses present. Their role is to confirm that the will has been signed by will creator. Witnesses must also be aged 18+, can’t be beneficiaries of the will (benefit from the will), and also be of sound mind. They then also need to sign the will for it to be valid.

Can I make an online will without a solicitor?

Wills can be divided into two categories: simple and complex. This is determined by the complexity of your estate and wishes. For a simple will you don’t need to hire a solicitor and can easily make your will online here. If you require a complex will, which generally means you have a very large and/or complicated estate, you might need to speak to a lawyer. Along with the best online will service we have a great network of solicitors. If you think you require a complex will you can call us on 0800 773 4014 for guidance.

What happens if I die without a will?

When you die without a will, it is called dying ‘intestate’. If this happens, by default your estate will pass to your ‘next of kin’. Next of kin is decided by the Crown and is considered to be your closest family member. Usually, this is your spouse, your children or parents. Simply being in a relationship does not class your partner as next of kin. 

If you have no one to inherit, the Crown will keep everything. Making a will online with us ensures your partner is protected, even if you’re not married.

What kind of will does your online will service make?

We create simple wills. This is a will that states your wishes, explains how your estate can be divided, names an executor(s), and nominates guardians for your pets and children in the event of your death.

A complex will is generally for very large and/or complicated estate or for those with foreign assets. This type of will often includes setting up trusts which take steps to reduce inheritance tax and covers multiple generations. If you think you need a complex will, you can call our wills team on 0800 773 4014 for guidance.

What can I leave my loved ones in my online will?

In your online will, you can leave anything that belongs to you. Below we list common things left behind in a will. 

  • Money
  • Property or land (that you own outright)
  • Specific belongings -  your favourite watch, your CD collection
  • Stocks and shares

Keep in mind that several fees, debts and taxes may need to be paid before your beneficiaries can inherit items listed in your will. These costs will be paid out of your estate.

Where should I store my will after it has been signed?

After you have printed your will, and signed it in front of valid witnesses, you should store it in a safe place. There are several recommended options:

  • At home. Whilst this is free, you should try and keep your will somewhere secure where it can be found in the event of your death.
  • With Guardian Angel. For the £10 a year fee, we’ll store a physical copy of your will. If you make changes you will need to let us know. 
  • With the Government Probate Service. This is a very safe option. If you’re in England or Wales, you can store your will with the government’s Probate Service for £20. It involves going in or sending by mail. If you want us to do this, talk to us on chat.
  • A legal professional, but will there will be an additional fee.

IMPORTANT: Whilst it sounds like a good idea, do not to store your will in a bank safety deposit box. A bank is generally not allowed to release the contents of the safety deposit box without a grant of probate which they cannot achieve without a will.

How often should I update my online will?

The answer to this question is dependent on your life circumstances. For example, having a baby or getting married will require you to update your will. The government recommends that you update your will every five years. Other key life events that might require you to rethink your will are as follows:

  • You get engaged or married
  • You get divorced
  • You buy or inherit a house
  • A person in your will dies

We don't think it is fair to charge you for a new will every time your life changes. Our £10 a year subscription service allows you to generate a new will whenever you want. Just remember though it is not legally binding until it has been signed with witnesses.

What is a beneficiary?

A beneficiary is listed in your will to inherit a part of your estate. Anyone - apart from the two witnesses who sign your will - can be a beneficiary.

What is a guardian?

A guardian, named in your will, cares for your children if both partners die. This part of your will is important to discuss if you have young children. Once your child is an adult, turns 18, they no longer need a guardian. 

You can also choose a guardian for a pet in your will. However, remember that with an animal there is no legal age and the guardian of your pet will remain guardian for its life.

Guardians can also be executors and beneficiaries listed in your will. Often, people decide to gift a cash amount to a guardian from the estate as a thank you.

What is an executor of a will?

An executor, named in your will, has the legal authority to settle your affairs after you die. The executor(s) of your will can also be a beneficiary in your will. In short, try and pick someone organised who you trust.

What is included in my online will purchase?

  • A legally binding will. We have used a recommended will document and a trained solicitor to ensure our will has met the highest standard in the UK. We spent a lot of time trying to remove unnecessary jargon, and developed with the latest technology to create an interactive online will document.

  • Every will is checked. Our in-house will expert will read over it and check that everything is correct. We will return your will within 7 days. If we have any questions, we will contact you via email.

What does Guardian Angel's online will yearly subscription include?

Adding a beneficiary to a will is fairly straightforward, so we keep it simple. Our £10 a year will subscription lets your save your details in our system and update these at any time.
  • Physical storage. If you want, we can keep a physical copy of your will. This is optional but is included in our yearly subscription price. We’ll have also entered a partnership with The National Will Register, so your family can find your will easily when the time comes.
