Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Click on the registration link you have received from your chosen law firm and follow all the helpful onscreen prompts to create your Will in as little as 15 minutes.
This is the person who you want to manage your affairs? You should have a bit of a think about who this person should be and make sure you have all their details.
In this section, you should list all the current assets in your possession. Don’t worry if you do not have exact figures, give a reasonable estimate.
This is the person you want to take care of your children. A parent usually has parental responsibility and does not need to be named as a guardian (unless they do not have parental responsibility e.g. in the event of a divorce settlement/court case).
These are your family, friends or charities that you wish to leave gifts (your estate). Within the App, you will be able to select and enter beneficiaries.
A Will is a legal document that allows you to specify who should benefit from your property, money and possessions after you’ve died. It’s very important that the wording used in your Will is clear and legally effective.
If you die without a Will in England or Wales the law will decide who gets what. If you have no living family members, all your possessions and property will go to the Crown.

We ask for your partner’s email address for two reasons:

  • Firstly, to help the executor(s) of your will identify and contact them when you die or at a very distant time in the future, we hope your executors will need to find the people named in your Will and let them know what to expect. Supplying an email address helps them differentiate between different people with similar names (perhaps you know two John Smiths). It also means they can contact your partner directly as soon as possible, so they don’t have to wait to find out what is happening with the Will.
  • Secondly, to make it easy for you to invite them to write a Will. Most couples tend to write their Wills at around the same time. It means that their families will be safe if something happens to either one of them. Lifeium makes this easier and more affordable with our ‘partner Wills’ option.

Once you have written your Will, you can pay for your partner to write theirs. Lifeium will then send your partner an email to invite them to get started. When you buy your partner Wills together, you get 50% off the second “ill. We’ll also help your partner save time by filling in the key details in the Will for them already.

We take your privacy and security very seriously at Beyond. We will never use your email or your partner’s email to contact either of you without your permission. All our Wills and the contact details in them are protected. As you complete your Will, the data is encrypted and sent to us using HTTPS. To keep your data secure, it is then stored in an encrypted format on multiple disks in a variety of locations. The data is monitored and backed up daily.

If you’re still not sure what to put, here are some suggestions:

  • Single. You are not dating anyone or are not married/in a civil partnership.
  • Living together/cohabiting: You’re in a committed relationship with someone and you may be living together.
  • Married/In a civil partnership. You are married or are in a civil partnership.
  • Engaged: You are in a committed relationship and anticipate getting married or entering into a civil partnership.

When creating a Will, one of the first thing to consider is Guardianship of your children. If you currently have Parental Responsibility over your children and they are under 18 years old, then you can include in your Will the appointment of a Guardian to look after your children whilst they are under 18 years old. This takes effect only if there is no one else with parental responsibility over your children when you pass away.

The importance of appointing a Guardian is one of the main reasons why parents make sure they have a valid Will in place. You can also include your children as beneficiaries in your Will even though they are very young. When this occurs, it is sensible to consider the age you would like your children to reach before being able to access their inheritance, typical ages are 18, 21 or 25. Whilst the child is under that age then their inheritance is managed on their behalf by people called Trustees. These are people that can also be appointed in your Will.

It Is nothing sinister, we ask for dates of birth for any children you have for two reasons;

  • The first is simply to make it easy for your executor(s) to find and contact your children.
  • The second is to find out if you need to name guardians for your children in your Will.
Yes, they can. There is no reason why any family member, friend or anyone else benefiting from your Will cannot be an Executor, as long as they are over 18 years old. Perhaps a more important question to ask is, are they willing and able to be an Executor?
No. A beneficiary in your Will should not be a witness to you signing it. The spouse or civil partner of the beneficiary should not be a witness either. If they do witness your Will, the gift that you leave to that beneficiary might fail and they may not receive the gift. A witness should be an independent person.

You may want to consider the following liabilities when valuing your estate:

  • Mortgages
  • Credit cards
  • Personal loans
  • Overdrafts
  • Store cards
  • Student loans
Once you have completed your Will online it will be sent to your Solicitors. They will have access to a draft of the Will and shall contact you as per the appointment scheduled within the app.
