Are DIY Will Kits Any Good?

Here at Willed, we regularly play the role of myth busters when it comes to the ins and outs of writing your own online Will. After all, we are the experts so it makes sense that we bring you up-to-date knowledge and sound advice on the best way to go about your post-life plans.

A question we get asked often is: is a DIY Will kit a good idea? So let’s start with debunking the first myth - who says you’ve got to do it yourself? We’ve taken care of the hard work, remember? The legal lingo, the judicial jargon, the tricky technicalities and all that other complicated jazz. We do all of it ourselves so that you don’t have to do any of the labour yourself. Let’s give you a closer look at what we do and in turn address this question more thoroughly.

Willed is built on pre-made, customisable Will templates, not a DIY-type approach.

Our aim in starting up Willed was to cut out all the difficulties that make writing up a traditional Will tedious in the first place. If we make it as easy and effortless as possible to write up your own Will, more everyday Australians will get around to having a plan in place postmortem. If we created a DIY-type situation, we guarantee our ancestors would be turning in their graves (and that isn’t a good look for anybody!).

Our Wills are built on documents and templates vetted by lawyers - this is how we make sure everything is legally binding.

If we left you to your own devices in creating your online Will from scratch...well, even the thought itself makes us panic. Our Wills are completely legal, and valid with current Australian law standards and guidelines. This is because they’ve already been overseen by qualified legal specialists who work closely with our team. So even though we give you complete ability to customise your own Will according to you and your family’s needs, we certainly don’t expect you to do the legal research yourself. Could you imagine? Actually, don’t. We want you to remain stress-free and happy.

One more time for the people in the back: Willed is not a DIY will kit but a user-friendly platform making it easier to write up your own online Will.

If you’ve made it this far, we’re sure the message is loud and clear. Willed is simply a platform we’ve created with the help of our hardworking technology and legal experts. We designed it to provide you with the ability to put in place exactly how you want your financial assets to be distributed and your loved ones taken cared of once you pass away.

So, did we clear up that common myth about Wills for you? If you have any other questions or concerns about our online Will platform, please don’t hesitate to call our friendly Willed team on 1300 945 533 or email us at [email protected] today.
