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.
A person who dies without a will is called intestate. If this happens the government decide how your assets will be divided.
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.
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.
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):
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.
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.
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.
In your online will, you can leave anything that belongs to you. Below we list common things left behind in a will.
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.
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:
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.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
