Issues To Consider With DIY Wills

Are you looking for a DIY Will?

The desire to accomplish something rewarding and the empowerment that we all feel after a few hours of surfing the Net can be great. But, one area in which DIY can be far more dangerous than hitting your thumb with a hammer is that of DIY wills and will writing. Get it wrong and you won’t just be bruised. Instead you could be bequeathing a potential nightmare for your bereaved and grief-stricken husband, wife, relatives or friends to deal with. Choose to overlook an obvious beneficiary, without explaining why, use ambiguous words which are open to different interpretations, or be ignorant of how the law operates in relation to your individual circumstances, and your final wishes may become a DIY disaster. Writing a Will is a skill, not a hobby – or at least it should be. As a result, many legal loopholes can be found in Wills written by unqualified Will Writers, or by the Will factories now springing up. DIY Wills may not be worth the paper they are written on.
