How Our Home Visit Will Writing Service Works
From start to finish, our home visit Will writing service is designed to allow you to create your perfect Will without needing to leave the comfort of your own home. After choosing a time and date that suits you, your consultant will conduct a detailed, in-depth consultation to evaluate your needs. Our expert consultant will then provide advice on what to do with your Will before relaying this information to our head office, where the Will can be constructed.
The process behind our home visit Will writing service is as follows:
Find an Ideal Slot
The benefit of a home visit is that you are able to dictate a time and place that is convenient to you. Our team of expert consultants are available for appointments between 8am-8pm on weekdays (or at weekends upon request).
Additionally, should you wish, you can take advantage of a free no-obligation video or phone call, allowing you to prepare for your consultation.
Once the consultant has arrived at your home, they will begin discussions with you. They will then ask a variety of questions regarding your personal circumstances and your family background. This is done to paint as clear a picture as possible of your situation.
The subjects your consultant may ask about include:
- The type and value of assets you possess (this can include property, heirlooms, money, and more)
- Your current family situation — do you have any dependents, siblings, etc?
- Which of your loved ones would you like to be beneficiaries of your Will?
- Who would you like to be the executor of your Will? Your executor is the party who will provide your assets to your beneficiaries as per your Will.
- Do you have any particular funeral wishes?
Once the consultant is certain of your wishes, they will provide you with advice on what steps they think you should take next, such as a Will, Living Will, Trust, etc. This will be explained to you clearly so you understand exactly what you might be signing up for, to ensure that your wishes are followed to the letter.
Upon this, we will take precise instructions regarding your wishes. These directions will then be relayed to our Head Office, where your Will is to be prepared.
Signing and Execution of Your Will
For your Will to be deemed legally binding it must be signed by, and in the presence of, two independent witnesses. Should you be unable to physically sign your Will, it can also be done with direction on your behalf (with a clause stating your agreement and understanding of the document attached).
Just Wills and Legal Services will contact you upon the completion of your Will in order to make a second appointment for its signing and execution.
Store Your Will
Just as important as making sure that your Will is completed and filled in properly, it’s vital that your Last Will and Testament is stored securely and appropriately. If your Will is lost or damaged, it will likely be declared as invalid. This will leave your estate in the vulnerable position of being distributed according to the rules of intestacy.
There are no strict guidelines in place about where you should store your Will. However, you must be certain that it is somewhere clean, organised, and convenient to access. As you had your Will writing consultation at home, storing it in the same location may seem the most convenient option, but it is common for important documents like this to be misplaced or accidentally destroyed if stored in your home.
It is important that you find a secure location to store your Will, to ensure that it is ready whenever needed. Once you find a location, it is important that you inform your executors so they can access it easily.
At Just Wills and Legal Services we offer a Customer Care Package which includes the option to securely store your Will and associated documents. The yearly cost for the Customer Care Package is just £30 a year for single Wills, or £40 for mirror Wills.
