    A single will is a legal document that allows an individual to transfer their assets to their chosen beneficiaries in the event of their death. This transfer can be made directly to the beneficiary or through a trust, such as a Discretionary Trust or Life Interest Trust.

    A single will can be created by a single person, or by a person who is in a relationship (be that married, in a civil partnership or living with a partner) if their wishes differ from their partner/spouse. If you have the same wishes as your partner/spouse, mirror wills will probably be more appropriate.

    MW Legal, online single wills

    MW Legal offers an easy online form that automatically produces a fully legal single will. With our system, there’s no need to create an account or come up with yet another new password; it’s a simple online process designed for safe and secure single use.

    Our online wills are also very tax efficient, allowing your estate to use both your Nil Rate Band (NRB) and your Residence Nil Rate Band (RNRB) if your executors need to do so and you have qualifying assets and qualifying beneficiaries. If you require advice on inheritance tax, please feel free to contact us for advice.

    What is a single will?

    A single will is a legal document that says who should benefit from your estate when you die. You can name the people you would like to inherit your money and/or property, for example, your parents, your children, other relatives or even close friends. You must sign and date it in front of witnesses to make it legally binding.

    A single will differs from a mirror will: as the name suggests, a single will is for one individual, whereas mirror wills are two identical wills produced for couples (not necessarily husband and wife, but those in civil partnerships or simply living together). Mirror wills usually state that each partner will receive the other’s estate after the first death and be passed on to other beneficiaries (often children) when both partners have passed away.

    Who is a single will for?

    Single wills are for single people or those in a relationship who have differing wishes upon their death from their partner or spouse. It’s really important to make a new single will when you get divorced or married or on the birth of your children.

    How much does a single will cost?

    We offer two stress-free options to create a single will.

    One option is to create a will easily and quickly using our online form. It will be automatically posted to you for signing for a fee of £39.

    If you want personal advice or need to add something more complex to your will, like details of trusts, for example, our experts can visit you at home, or else telephone, email or video call. They will then write your will for you. While this costs more than our online service, it is still excellent value for money. See the prices on our pricing page.

    When should you get a single will done?

    There’s no time like the present when it comes to making a will, as who knows what the future holds? If you die without a will, you will be ‘intestate’, meaning your wishes may not be followed.

    Certain events make creating a new will even more pressing, such as marriage, divorce, or the birth of children or grandchildren. People often write new wills when they move house because they need to change the details of the property they are protecting.

    Other triggers to writing a new are if the individual wishes to add charities as beneficiaries or when they inherit property from their deceased parents, and so their wishes change.

    What does a single will comprise?

    The person making the will can appoint people to manage and benefit from their estate:

    • Executor(s) – The person(s) chosen to carry out the instructions in someone’s will, making sure their assets are distributed according to their wishes after they die.
    • Guardian(s) – The person(s) appointed to take care of the deceased’s children if they are under 18, and make important decisions about their life, such as their education, health, and general well-being.
    • Trustee(s) – The person(s) or organisation that is given control over and responsibility for managing assets in a trust, making decisions in the best interest of the beneficiaries.
    • Beneficiaries – The individuals who will benefit from the deceased’s estate, often including a partner or children, and sometimes secondary beneficiaries.
