You can make a Will right now with Lawpack's simple to follow DIY Will Kit.
Step by step we'll show you how easy it is to make a legally valid Last Will and Testament in no time at all, and without the fuss, inconvenience and expense of a trip to a solicitor.

Making a Will doesn't have to be difficult or expensive.
More than a million people have already given themselves peace of mind, and protected their family and friends, by making a legally-valid Will with Lawpack's Last Will and Testament Kit (or "Download Now" Will eKit).

Here's why you need to make a Will.

If you do not make a Will, the government effectively makes a Will for you.
And, although many people assume this will match their intentions, this is sadly not often the case.
Making a legally valid Last Will and Testament is the only effective way to ensure that you protect those that you care about.

Find out why our outdated intestacy laws mean you should be making a Will now. 

The consequences of not making a Will fall hardest on those you love who are left behind.
By making a last will & testament today, you can save them the heartache and trouble that can be caused by dying without a Will.

Find out how dying without making a Will can affect those you love.

Here's how you could be making a Will right now.

Making a Will is simple with a Lawpack Last Will & Testament Kit.

Our Will Kits are regularly checked and updated by barristers and solicitors to ensure that they are legally valid and easy to complete.
And there are no hidden costs or expensive legal fees...

Each Will Kit contains comprehensive, clear guidance that walks you through the straightforward process of making a Will. Template Will forms are provided, along with advice on how to complete the legal forms.

For the majority of the population there is no need whatsoever to see a solicitor for making a Will.
And, don't worry, we will tell you if you are in the small minority who should.

Find out if a DIY Will is right for you.

Our Will pack offers you a quick, economical and legally valid way to make a Will and ensure that your property and savings will go to those you wish.

The legal Will forms and guidance are continuously checked and approved by barristers Eason Rajah QC and Richard Dew of Ten Old Square, Lincoln's Inn, under English law, by Tughans solicitors under the law of Northern Ireland and by Neill, Clerk & Murray, solicitors, under Scottish law.

There are three types of Will included in our Will Kit. You should use only one Will form and your choice of form to complete depends on who you wish to receive the residue of your estate.

  1. Form 1 can be used if you want to give the residue of your estate to an adult, and provide for another adult to have the residuary estate instead if the first person fails to survive you by 28 days. This form may also be used to give your residue to a charity.

  2. Form 2 can be used if you want to give the residue of your estate to an adult, and provide for your children to take the residuary estate instead in equal shares if the adult fails to survive you by 28 days.

  3. Form 3 can be used if you want to give the residue of your estate to your children in equal shares in any event.

Lawpack's paper Will pack comes with only one copy of each Will form. But if you purchase the 'Download Now' eKit, you can download the forms onto your computer and use them as many times as you like.

When using our Will pack to write your Will, you and your wife will need to write two separate Wills. Our 'Download' Now' Will eKit includes template Word Will forms which can be downloaded onto your computer and used as many times as you like. 

If you want to make a joint Mirror Will, you can use our Online Will Service or Bespoke Will Service - both provided by leading UK law firm Irwin Mitchell - and the Wills will be mirrored to reflect each other's wishes.

Lawpack's Last Will & Testament eKit is a downloadable version of the mailed Last Will & Testament Kit. Instead of the physical copy being sent out to you in the post, you can download the eKit instantly and save it to your computer.

No, there is no need to have a solicitor make your will “legal”. Your Lawpack Will pack has been prepared by barristers to ensure that it is legally valid. Simply follow the instructions and guidance that are provided with the Kit.

A solicitor does not need to witness your will. Once you have made a will it can be witnessed by friends or anybody else you trust and this act will make your will perfectly legal. The only people who shouldn't be witnesses are the beneficiaries of the will - witnesses can't inherit anything from a will they are witnessing.

If the child is over the age of 18, you can use our Will Form 1 called “Residue to Adult”. If the child is under 18, you currently will not be able to write a Will using our DIY Last Will & Testament Kit.

Yes, included in our Last Will & Testament Kit is Will Form 3, called “Residue direct to children”, where you can leave your estate directly to your children.

If your children are over the age of 18, you can also use Will Form 1, “Simple Gift of Residue” which is appropriate for leaving your estate to adults.

The Guidance Manual included in the Will Kit will outline which form you should use.

Although the Will forms have not changed significantly in the last five years, it is best to buy an updated Kit, as changes are made to the advice given in the Manual by the approving lawyers.
