Hove, United Kingdom (PressExposure) January 25, 2012 -- In England & Wales, you do not need a solicitor to make a will. A totally new website allows you to make a will online without the expense!
New website makeawillonline.co.uk lets you make a fully legal will in minutes for a fraction of the cost of a solicitor. Using a proprietary will generation engine designed by an experienced solicitor and a web usability expert, makeawillonline.co.uk is the perfect choice for a simple, legally binding will at your convenience.
On the website, users answer a simple set of questions that usually take around 20 minutes from start to finish. Once the online interview is complete, the user sees a comprehensive summary of their will and is given the chance to change any details. Secure payment is provided via PayPal, where users can either use an existing account or pay by card.
The will writing service costs just £29.50 for a single will in comparison to the typical £200 fee charged by lawyers. Once you have made a will and received the document, it is completely free to login and make changes. Upon successful payment, users receive the document via email as a PDF file, complete with instructions on how to make the document legal.
The team behind the venture say:
"Making a will is something that many of us keep putting off. Thinking of our own mortality is not nice, which is probably why over half of adults in the UK don't have a legally valid Wills in place. What this means, in reality, is that the courts decide who gets what in the event of a death. Sometimes this can lead to nasty surprises."
"Having a well-drafted will is the only way to avoid these unnecessary and unpleasant complications at a difficult time in people's lives."
Makeawillonline.co.uk has £1 million professional indemnity insurance and is suitable for the large majority of wills in England and Wales, although larger estates should be managed by a solicitor and overseas property typically needs to be dealt with via a separate will in the relevant country. Please note that residents of Scotland and Northern Ireland cannot currently use this service, due to differing probate law.
