Dying without a will is much more common than we’d like to think. According to a survey conducted by Macmillan Cancer support in 2018, as many as 42% of adults in the UK don’t have a legally binding will.
Death has always been a hard subject to approach, especially when thinking about your own mortality, or a loved one’s. Unfortunately, it’s something that none of us can avoid. Getting your estate and wishes in order is a massive step in making the grieving process easier for those close to you.
Although you might not have thought it, it is entirely possible to write your own will. There are a number of free templates available online to download and fill out. This may seem like a quick and cheap solution, but as a will is ultimately a legal document, there’s a real risk that the smallest mistakes could lead to your wishes going unfulfilled. The more complex your will is, the higher the risk of something going wrong. This can cause months or even years of unnecessary pain and grief for loved ones who may have to fight in the courts to gain ownerships over an estate.
Why take that risk? Mylastwill offers an innovative online will writing service that has been streamlined to make the process extremely straightforward and understandable. All the technical jargon is handled on our end, requiring you to simply fill in the information we request from you. The process can be completed from start to finish in under 20 minutes, without the need to hire a solicitor and pay unnecessary legal fees.
Once you have filled out the necessary information, our expert team will begin the process of checking your will. Their years of specialist experience assure that your wishes are met, and they will work with you to identify any problems and rectify them before your will goes into print.
The final stage of the process requires you to sign your will. The law states that two witnesses must be present when you sign your will, who can then countersign. Almost anyone can be a witness provided they’re not a beneficiary of your will, with most people asking their friends or neighbours. Once everything has been signed, your will is officially legally binding. Simple as that!
