As long as your will is drafted correctly, a will created with a will kit is legally binding. A will is considered legally binding if :
- There’s a physical copy of the will (we recommend making multiple digital and hard copies);
- The person writing the will is over 18 and of sound mind;
- The person writing the will has signed their will (no digital signatures);
- Two witnesses over 18 who have seen you sign your will also sign as witnesses.
While will kits are an easy and low-cost solution for many people, it’s worth keeping in mind that they’re often best for simpler, more straightforward estates since they tend to be templates. If you have specific questions or if your estate is a bit more complicated, get in touch with us for expert advice at the fraction of the cost of an estate lawyer.
