Making a Will Online & Make a Will
A Will is a document which you create to give directions for the distribution of the assets you own on death/your property (that is, your property also commonly called your Estate) to Beneficiaries. The Will indicates who will manage your estate (the Executor(s) of your Will) and, if need be, appoints Guardians to look after minor children when both parents have died.
A Will is therefore a very important document and everyone over the age of 18 years should make one. It provides certainty and comfort to those who survive. For a Will to be effective and recognised by the UK government it must conform to certain legal conditions (as per the Wills Act 1837) and be signed by the person (testator) making the Will in front of two adult independent witnesses present at the same time.
Without a Will, you will leave your loved ones with far more work to do after your death and it is highly likely that your possessions will not be distributed the way you want. With no recognised document for the administration or distribution of your possessions, your family will not have control.
Anyone who owns property in their own name such as bank accounts, car, flat / house, furniture, life insurance, and death-in-service benefits (with work) etc should have a Will. The Will states who looks after this property if you die and who will receive the benefit.
Every Will document purchased from glossLegal is checked by a qualified Trust & Estates solicitor, not just qualified Willwriter which gives you complete peace of mind.
