About this document
This deed assigns a policy for an endowment or life insurance from trustees to a beneficiary.
It is for use where the receiving party does not pay for the value of the policy (instead use this deed)
For technical legal reasons, all assignments of life policies must be by deed and not by contract.
From a practical point of view, that means that a deed requires a witness to the signatures. Unless it is more convenient to do otherwise, the same witness can verify the signatures of both parties.

- The assignment

This document was written by a solicitor for Net Lawman. It complies with current English law.

The document was just what I needed. It was very straightforward to complete and the accompanying notes were in very plain speak English and explained things fully. This gave me confidence.The price charged made it very affordable compared with the alternative of professional legal fees.

he document was very clear and easy to complete/edit.
However it remains to be seen if it was the correct one for the purpose.......this was not apparent without buying the (relatively )expensive review service.
