Why write a Letter of Wishes?

A Letter of Wishes is written alongside your Will. It helps your executors understand your wishes, but it isn’t legally binding. It can advise on pretty much anything, but here are some of the most common things it’s used for: 

Children Illustration
How you’d like your children raised

This could include where they live, who should raise them, and details about religious upbringing or education. 

Assets Illustration
How you’d like your money managed

Take the opportunity to guide your executors and trustees on how you'd like your money to be managed.

Funeral Illustration Copy
What kind of funeral you would like

Whether you’d like to be buried or cremated, plus details about the funeral service, such as playing a particular piece of music. 

Assets Illustration
How you'd like your personal possessions distributed

For items that you do not mention in your Will, but you feel sentimental about, for example, souvenirs and photographs.

Common Questions

Letter of Wishes

How long does it take to complete a document?

We suggest you set aside around 1 hour to complete a document, although it can take less or more time, depending on the type of document you're creating and how much information you have to hand.

What happens once I've completed the document?

Your legal document will be created for you to view. If you bought a 'Self Service' document, it is now ready to be printed, signed and witnessed.

If you have chosen a product that includes a review, you can now submit your document to our specialists. They’ll review it and send you any feedback, guidance and suggestions. Then we’ll send you an email confirming the next steps.

How long does the legal review take?

We aim to complete the review in 10 working days. At busy times it might take slightly longer.

I bought more than one document, but I can only find one of them. Where are the others?

You will need to log in to your account and go to the ‘My documents’ section.
