What is a Will?
A Will is a legal document that contains your instructions on how you want your property (including assets such as your home, car and cash etc.) to be distributed after you have died.
This online Will is not a substitute for legal advice. Neither the author, publisher nor printer (either separately or together) is involved in the giving of financial, tax or legal advice online. This Will is a straightforward Will, which does not cover complicated personal, family, tax or financial arrangements, such as but not limited to divorce-related maintenance issues, overseas property, domicile or residence, business or agricultural property or trusts. If you are unsure about any of the matters raised in this Will, or, for example, should you have a complex family situation, tax profile or asset portfolio, you should contact us prior to completing the online Will. A home visit by one of our professional consultants can be arranged. You should also consider taking legal and tax advice if the overall amount of your estate is above the inheritance tax threshold from time to time (set at £325,000 for the UK tax year 2020-21) plus an additional £175,000 'main residence nil rate band' if going to your direct descendants. The author, publisher and printer do not accept responsibility or liability for any loss, damage, cost or expense that arises from anyone relying on the information provided in this Will. This Will is provided solely on the basis that you will be responsible for making your own assessment of the information within it.
