Online Will Writing Service
With so many people not having a Will, this can cause a great deal of problems for your family and friends to resolve once you have passed away. Using an online Will writing service such as Smart Will makes everything so much easier and more convenient! There are lots of reasons why you should write a Will:
- Children: if you have children or step-children who are under 18 years old, you need to choose who will look after them and make sure there is money available to help.
- Unmarried couples: the law does not recognise unmarried couples in the same way as married couples, so you cannot always expect to your possessions to pass directly to your partner.
- Divorced: It is important to include what happens to your assests should a previous partner remarry
- Pets: you can decide who will look after your family pets
- Property: Not all mortgages allow for direct passing over of your home, and property overseas may be subject to very different inheritance laws
- Business Owner: if you are a sole director, it is important that you have an executor so that payments can be authorised through your business.
An ideal choice for anyone, from single parents to married couples, our Smart Will app allows you to appoint your executor, leave your loved one’s gifts, appoint guardians and more. For peace of mind, we can also add in any special requests you may have regarding your funeral preferences, or even leave a video message for your family and friends, and let executors know where they can find your important documents at home.
