The process for creating a will

1
Preparation

Preparation should take around 25 minutes. You’ll need to consider who will be your beneficiaries, what valuable assets you own, who you would like to receive them, who will be your executor, who you want to care for any minor children and what you would like for your funeral.  See our guide for 5 things to think about when making your will.

2
Consultation

Online, complete the document in your own time. In person, one of our experts will lead you through the process of preparing your will, and answer any questions you may have. This can take from 20 minutes online for a simple will, to 1.5 hours in person for a complex will.

3
Review & approval (in person only)

We’ll prepare and check your will and then send it to you for approval before signing. This usually happens 3-5 working days after your consultation, and is your chance to ensure everything is correct.

4
Signing & safe storage

If you create your will in one of our customer centres we’ll help you witness and sign your will before storing it in our vault if that is what you want. This takes around 15 minutes, and we’ll give you a copy to take home with you. Online wills also need to be printed out and signed in front of two witnesses.

5
Have things changed?

We recommend reviewing your will every year to make sure it’s still up to date.

It's important to review your will regularly, especially after any significant events or changes in your life like welcoming a new baby, ending or starting a relationship, and buying or selling a home or business. We’ll send you a reminder to check your will after a year.
