Tell us a little about you. We'll put this information in the right places on your will so it becomes legal once it's printed & signed.
A Standard Will is the right choice for most people and is the only choice if you are not in a committed relationship. It costs £19.97 when you're ready to print it.
A Mirror Will is really two wills that have very similar details on them. A Mirror Will might be the best option for you if you're a couple with similar beliefs as it spares you the trouble of writing two separate wills. It costs £29.97 when you're ready to print it.
You should choose a Mirror Will if you are happy to:
Appoint your partner as the main Executor of your will. That means your partner is responsible for taking care of your requests.
Appoint your partner as the legal Guardian of your children
Leave the remainder of your estate to your partner. That means anything you don't specify in particular. For example, if you specifically mention that you want your record collection to go to your sister but don't specify any other gifts then your partner will automatically inherit everything except your record collection
Value for money
We know that circumstances in life change so you can switch between a Standard Will and a Mirror Will any time. We will remember your details in case you want to change back. If you have paid for a Standard Will already but later change it to a Mirror Will then you will only need to pay the difference in price when you come to print it for the first time. You'll only ever be charged once for this upgrade no matter how many times your circumstances change.
Welcome to Your Will
The most beautiful will writer ever designed
The Details screen asks you to supply basic information about you, including your date of birth and where you live.
Your Will makes it easy to create a beautiful will that's legally binding. And you can edit your will any time at http://www.yourwillbedone.co.uk from a Mac, PC, tablet or mobile browser.
When you create a will, it's stored securely on our servers and you won't be charged a penny until you're ready to print it. You don't need to worry about saving it either - Your Will saves every change you make the moment you make it.
Pay once, change as many times as you like
No matter how many times you change your will, you'll only ever be charged once. So your first payment covers you and your family for a whole life-time.*
*We plan on being around for a long time but should our company fall from grace or be sold to another owner, it's possible they might ask for some form of additional payment at some point. If they do, it's totally up to you whether or not you want to pay it. It's only fair we tell you this in the unlikely event something unforeseen happens to Your Will. Remember, you can print a hard copy for yourself any time you want and keep the PDF that we give you on your own computer.
Here you can list your chosen Executors, people who you trust to carry out the requests in your will.
Choose People You Trust
Make executors your first thought, not an afterthought
Your executors are people you choose to enforce the requests you make in your will. These people will be responsible for carrying out your wishes so make sure your trust them.
You can specify just one executor if you want to. Having just one executor could make it difficult if that person isn't around after your death and most executors find it much easier to share the task with someone else. On the other hand, if you choose two executors that don't get along, the process of your wishes being carried out could be somewhat stressful!
You can choose to leave specific gifts to your relatives and friends on this screen. If you don't want to leave specific gifts, just move to the next screen instead and choose one or more people to inherit everything.
Give What You Can't Take With You
A lasting legacy for those you leave behind
Here, you have just two options to begin with:
1. I want to leave specific gifts
List certain items (money, property, possessions, etc.) and then nominate a person, group of people or organisation to receive each item
2. I don't want to leave specific gifts
Give everything you have to a person, group of people or organisation
If you choose not to leave specific gifts, you'll be taken to the next screen where you can choose a single person, group of people or an organisation to receive all your stuff.
If you choose the first option then you can write down items you own and specify who receives them. You can add as many as you like. When you add an item to your list, the type can be: Cash, Gift or Property. Item options are different for each type. There's also a Remove Gift button for each item you specify so you can easily get rid of it should you need to.
You can always change your mind
Whether you choose to leave items to specific people or not, Your Will saves everything so you can switch from option 1 to option 2 and vice-versa any time.
Something worth remembering
If you have any outstanding debt (including an unpaid mortgage) when you pass away, the authorities or companies you owe money to might require it back. If this is the case, then the money you owe will be taken from your estate, meaning your loved ones could receive less. To learn more about this caveat in UK law, click here.
By including a reference to chattels, you are instructing your executors to search for a 'chattels'
document after you're gone. This is a written list that you can attach to your will with specific
instructions about what should happen to your personal belongings. For instance you could write
on a piece of paper, "I want my gold watch to go to my nephew Callum and my sovereign coin
collection to go to my nephew Ethan." Then write 'My Chattels' at the top of the page and attach it
to your printed will. This is in addition to what you’ve already listed in your will so you can change it
without re-working the will itself.
Why use Chattels? some people prefer not to specify belongings in the will because they can't
guarantee to have those things in the days ahead so while they like to include instructions on
where their property and money should go, belongings are referenced in a separate document that
they can keep updated as their circumstances change.
Please be aware that whilst executors are always encouraged to take the chattels document into
account, they are not under legal obligation to do so.
Use this box only to specify a condition not possible using one of the other options. In particular:
Do NOT enter something that is not a specific condition to be applied to this gift/legacy or duplicate any other conditions that you have ticked. For example If you have selected an age that the person is to inherit do not specify this again.
Do NOT enter a 'message' to the beneficiary - write a separate letter if you have something to say to that person.
Use words such as "and I DECLARE THAT" or: "PROVIDED THAT" in your condition for example, provided that my executor is satisfied that he no longer gambles etc.
When you have completed all of the Will forms, you will see a Summary of your Will. Please check this to ensure you have not duplicated any conditions.
Decide who gets anything not mentioned on the Assets screen. If you didn't specify anything then whoever you nominate on this screen gets everything.
Who Gets What?
Know at a glance, change it with a click
If you chose not to leave specific gifts then you can use this screen to choose your beneficiaries - that is, all those who will receive your stuff. You can add as many beneficiaries as you like and choose to split their share equally or give each one a specific percentage. Beneficiaries can be individuals or organisations.
On the other hand, if you did leave specific gifts then the same rules apply but the beneficiaries you mention will receive everything that belongs to you that wasn't specifically mentioned anywhere else in your will. For example, if you left your house to Uncle Bob and your gaming console to Aunty Gladys then your piano (which wasn't mentioned) will be given to whoever you list here.
In the event that one of your beneficiaries dies, you can choose to:
Split what they would have received between the surviving beneficiaries
Name someone else to receive it
In this way, you have complete say over how you want your belongings to be split between friends, family members or organisations.
Once you're gone, what would you like your funeral wishes to be? You can add more detail by expanding the 'Optional Last Wishes' box.
You can choose whether you want to be buried, cremated or... just about anything you can think of! Other Instructions allows you to write a less common choice. If you choose this, you should write clearly what you would like to happen to your remains under Special Instructions.
The Optional Last Wishes box allows you write any details about what you'd like for your funeral service. Your Will provides a list of common funeral choices for you to make such as the venue, type of service and any music you'd like but you can write detailed instructions in the Special Instructions box.
