  Read the document and the instructions carefully.

   Insert all requested information in the square brackets within it. These square brackets are an indicator to you that information is required to be inserted or that you need to choose the appropriate clause from the selection of clauses presented to you in the Will. Once you have inserted the correct information or chose the right clause then please delete all square brackets and clauses that are not required.

    You can appoint up to 4 executors if you wish. We at least recommend two in the event that one dies before you. We have drafted the Will on the basis that you will have two executors and one substitute. If you do not want the substitute executor then just delete that wording.

   You will need to specify who you are giving your Estate to. If it is a family member please specify the family member (your nephew, cousin etc). Make sure you insert their full name and address. If you are leaving money to a charity, use the full name of the charity, its address and insert their registered charity number. Most charities will have the exact wording you should use for their names on their websites.

Prior to purchasing "Simple Will" I did purchase another will form. I found this to be too open ended and lacking in instructions. FINDLEGALFORMS fulfilled my requirements. You receive a number of different document formats to chose from. I used Word. This was able to be edited and changed to suit personal requirements, without any problems. The generic form included relevant criteria to be covered which I would not have thought of without seeking legal advice. All contingencies were covered. The instructions and checklist were clearly listed without any ambiguities. I now have a sense of security that my estate will be acted upon in accordance with my wishes.
