Making a Will is one of the most important things you can do to protect your estate and ensure the ones you love inherit according to your wishes after you die.

The consequences of not having a Will can be severe, and yet millions of people in the UK haven't made a Will. Often, people think that making a Will is complicated and expensive.

That's why we're here. We give you the power and control to create the Will you want, in the comfort of your own home.


Reasons to Start Today

  • A Will ensures that you are in control of what happens to your estate when you die
  • A Will enables you to decide who should look after your children, should you die before they are 18 years old
  • A Will ensures your unmarried partner can be a beneficiary in your estate
  • A Will can help you to minimise the inheritance tax paid by your beneficiaries
  • Your Will gives you the peace of mind of knowing that you have minimised the stress on your loved ones when you die
  • A Will allows you to decide who should handle the closure of your estate (probate)
  • A Will gives you the opportunity to leave gifts to friends, charities or other people
  • A Will allows you to ensure that certain people do not inherit from your estate

Risks of Not Having a Will

  • Without a Will you will die 'intestate', meaning that the Courts decide how your estate shall be distributed
  • If you are not married and do not have a Will, there is no guarantee that your partner will become the legal guardian of your children
  • Without a Will you are unable to decide how your family members and loves ones will inherit your estate
  • Without a Will other members of your family may try to make a claim on your estate after you die
  • Without a Will you are unable to donate any of your estate to charity or other causes
  • There may be considerably more stress on your loved ones after you die if you did not make a Will
  • If takes substantially longer to distribute your assets and close your estate, resulting in potential hardship for your loved ones
