Questions

  • Yes. It is very common to name the executor of you will as one of the beneficiaries. This is completely legal and will not cause any complications in enacting your wishes.

  • You can either ask your executor to keep the original signed copy, or more commonly, have it placed in secure storage for safe keeping. Whatever option you choose, make sure that executors know where and how to access the will.

  • Your will may be contested if someone doesn’t benefit from your estate after you die, and would have expected to. Although this isn’t a common occurrence, you can take steps to avoid any confusion and upset by speaking to your friends and family about your will before creating it. Someone may be able to contest your will if they can prove you haven’t made reasonable financial provisions for them.

    It’s important that you seek expert guidance when creating your will to ensure that your wishes are clear and legally enactable.

  • Technically, anyone over 18 can be the witness to your signature. However, it’s always recommended that you choose someone impartial; that is someone who is not a family member or friend, a beneficiary of your will of the executor.

    Having an impartial witness helps to prevent any unnecessary legal challenges in the future.

  • If you create a will and wish all of your children to inherit, it is important that you make this clear. Naming only some of your children, and omitting others, could result in your will being contested.

    When someone in the line of inheritance who should by rights receive a share isn’t specifically named, it may be ruled as a mistake and be legally overridden. If you want to formally disinherit a child or a direct family member, you will need to make this clear and give your reasoning in your will.

  • Yes you can, and any gift is given tax relief if being donated to a registered charity. By leaving a financial gift in a will, this can be a great way to show appreciation to a charity which is close to your heart and can help them with their ongoing running costs.

  • Yes, though it’s extremely important that you let your executor know that you have done so. It is often the case that a will is not looked at until after a funeral and therefore your wishes may not be known before the service. Create an Additional Clauses section within your bespoke will and use this to provide any guidance for your funeral. Remember however, that this will be seen as your wishes only and is not legally binding.

  • If you go through a life changing event, such as having more children, getting married or divorced or any other change in family circumstances, it’s time to review your will. Some changes in your situation can automatically revoke your previous will and some can merely cause major complications. Whatever changes occur, it’s good practice to check that your will is still sound and make any necessary changes to ensure it will still be legally binding.
