Five easy steps to making a Will

Updated 13 Sep 2021.

Writing a Will

In line with Include a Charity Week 2021, Safewill is offering our supporters a special discount on the usual price of writing a Will on their platform during September. For a limited time only, you can prepare a legally valid and bespoke Will online for just $80 (usually $160).

It may seem like a daunting task, but having a Will is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and your loved ones and can be completed in just a few quick steps. Here are five tips to help you draft a Will:

  1. Consider your assets.
  2. Decide who should benefit from your Will. This may include family members, friends, and charitable organisations.
  3. Seek legal advice, this may be in person or via an online Will writing platform such as Safewill. This ensures your Will is legally correct and your wishes will be followed accurately.
  4. Select an Executor for your Will as they will ensure that your wishes are followed correctly. Solicitors, family members or friends can act as an Executor.
  5. Keep your Will up to date as your circumstances change. If major changes are required, it is best to write a new Will.

Already written a Will?

It's important to review and update your Will whenever your circumstances change, which includes:

  • Marriage (getting married automatically cancels all previous Wills).
  • When you purchase your first major asset such as a house.
  • When you have children or adopt a new pet, you can nominate guardians and make arrangements for their care.
  • When you retire.
  • If you separate or divorce.
  • Before you go on holiday.
  • If there are changes to your health, such as being diagnosed with cancer.
