is a hand written Will worth the risk?

Some people ask if a handwritten will is legal in the UK – the answer is yes. Technically as long as you get your will signed in the presence of two witness who are not beneficiaries in the Will then any old piece if paper could do.

However consider the fact that if you want your last wishes to be treated and carried out seriously you can write your Will using our online will form – a scrappy piece of paper might not stand up well if someone were to dispute your last wishes in your Will.

In summary, the answer to the frequent question – “can a will be written on a piece of paper in the UK”, the answer is yes, but you would be better off using our online will service.
