Simple will with gift over
This free template creates a simple last will and testament where the testator leaves all his or her assets to one other person (adult). If that beneficiary does not succeed you, then the estate is given to someone else, or to a charity, or shared between a group of people (such as your children, or your grandchildren, or your nieces and nephews). There are no provisions for individual gifts (bequests or legacies) to be made. Included with the template are extensive guidance notes, explaining clearly how to edit the document and how to sign the will correctly, and a short example letter of intent to your executors.
- Solicitor approved
- Plain English makes editing easy
- Guidance notes included
- Money back guarantee
About this document
This is the most simple will we offer. It has been written for use by someone who wishes to leave all of his or her possessions to a single person or organisation, such as a husband or wife, a child over 16 years of age or a charity.
You can also nominate another person, group of people or charity to receive your estate if the beneficiary does not outlive you by more than a certain time period.
Like all our wills, this template is written in plain English. This not only makes editing easy, but also makes it more certain that your wishes will be understood and followed.
Our guidance notes explain how to edit the document and provide extensive information about why we include each paragraph and the decisions you might need to make. Creating your own will is a straightforward process.
Once you have finished editing the document, you simply need to print, date and sign your will (witnessed by two other people) to make it legally binding. We explain exactly how to do this in the guidance notes. You don’t need to involve a solicitor.
So that you can be confident that your wishes will be carried out, users of this template qualify for two additional free services. A qualified will writer can check that your signed will is legally binding, and we can safely and securely store your will for you – protecting it from accidental damage (such as damp or fire) and keeping the decisions about how your estate will be distributed private until your death. We explain how to take up these services in the notes to the document.
This document is in Microsoft Word format, which is compatible with many other word processors including Mac Pages, LibreOffice and WordPerfect. We can provide it in other formats on request.
Who should use this template?
This will template could be used in many different circumstances, but we envisage that it is most likely to be used by someone who is:
- married without children, and leaving all possessions to a husband, wife or partner;
- widowed, and leaving all assets to an adult son or daughter;
- single without children, and leaving all assets to a family member or a co-habiting partner.
This template is suitable for a man or for a woman - it isn't gender specific. We follow normal, modern legal convention of using the masculine form of a word regardless of the gender of the person.
Other alternatives to this template
Because this is a simple will template, it doesn't contain as many options as other versions we offer.
For example, there are no options to leave bequests or legacies (specific gifts to individuals) before leaving the whole estate to someone.
Nor have we included trust provisions. While you can use this will to leave your estate to a child under 16, the gift will pass to the parents or guardians for safekeeping, and it will be their decision as to how the child benefits.
If you wish to leave your estate to a minor, or you want to make bequests or legacies, another one of our free templates is more suitable. See Last will and testament - to one person.
Note that this simple will template does not contain provisions that seek to minimise inheritance tax. If this is important to you, you should look at the other Net Lawman last will and testament templates, a number of which cover basic IHT planning (largely as illustrated by HM Revenue and Customs).
If the value of your estate could exceed the nil rate bands (NRBs), then we suggest that you seek advice from a qualified tax specialist before signing your will. The standard NRB in 2017/18 remains £325,000, with an additional band of £100,000 when a residence is passed on to a direct descendant.
Why we provide this template free
Our motivations for providing free will templates are both ethical and commercial. We have one of the largest ranges of will templates for download from the Internet, but only provide a few more popular ones for free.
A will is an important legal document, and we believe that everyone should make one. Because the law sets out how your estate will be divided if you don't have a will, without one, the people you care about are less likely to receive specific gifts (whether of financial or sentimental value) that you want to pass on to them.
The reason why most people don't write a will is the financial cost of doing so. We want to remove that barrier. Our free templates are most suitable for less complicated estates that are valued below the inheritance tax nil rate band (when no tax would be paid).
Our commercial motivation is simply that once you have used a Net Lawman will, we hope that you will be more likely to return to us for legal documents for other aspects of your personal or business life. Providing a complete, commonly used, free template that is based on our more complex paid versions is a great way for you to assess the quality of our documents.
When to use this will
You can write a will at any time in your life. Most people consider a new will when their financial circumstances change, or when relationships change. The Law Society advises that you review you will every five years, and that you make a new will after a major life change such as having a child, marriage, separation or divorce. It is possible to change a will without making a new one, but a new one is usually the better option.
More information on writing your will
The law on wills can seem complicated. We have prepared a number of short articles to explain the more difficult legal concepts. You may like to read some of our articles on writing a will.

It’s a little early to respond in full, but initially I would like to commend your firm on the effective use of ‘plain English’ in these legal documents. This applies to all three sets I downloaded.
By Stephen George Emery 09 October 2017
Excellent for me, as I only have one beneficiary, and, my estate consists of only what I have in the bank after expenses and personal items(no land or house,etc).
It was easy to understand and simple to fill in, all done, and, witnessed in 24 hours.
By Sandra Thorpe 03 October 2017
I downloaded this document for my sister and brother in law - he is terminally ill and could not afford to have a will done professionally. The template was easy to follow for their very simple straight forward will. This has given them both peace of mind at a very difficult time in their lives.
No improvement needed

By Tim Young 25 July 2017
My wife's parents are very elderly and not at all well. We wanted to make sure that they had wills in place and not knowing whether they had or not, I researched the internet to find documents that I could use. I chose yours because they were simple and easy to use with good explanatory notes. The wills I needed to prepare were very simple with no complications. They wee signed yesterday.

The document was very simple to download and easy to understand. The explanatory notes were also very helpful and covered issues I would not have considered without them.
By Derek Whitbread 14 July 2017
I found this document easy to follow. Download was easy. I need to update my will. Previously my will was drawn up by a professional company and had to pay £25 a year just in case I needed to change it. As I am now retired I feel this is rather extortionate and cannot justify paying this yearly charge.
Would certainly recommend you to others.
By Shawn Harris 11 July 2017
I'm pleased to have found a formal template for a WILL, for free. The guidance notes, and highlighted parts for ones own input, make it simple and easy, and the example letter is an added bonus. Can it be improved? If its not broken, don't try to fix it!
By Peter Duncan 08 July 2017

The template and helpful guidance notes were easy to download and clear to read and understand. I wanted this for my 95 year-old mother-in-law and it was easy to simplify your template to fit her very straight forward requirements, so she need not get confused by things that are not applicable to her. She is very happy with the result, and we know that the will has been correctly legally constructed.
You are providing a very good service for people in my mother-in-law’s situation, who have very simple wishes and not much money to spend on expensive lawyers. Thank you.

The ease of use meant I actually got round to finalising my will!
By Tracy Padden 22 February 2017
The document and guidance notes are very clear and simple to use.
Thank you for making these tempkates available to people and de-mystifying the whole process.
By Graham Pratt 20 February 2017
The fact that it is provided in a format that allows easy editing is the real advantage this format has over many other internet offerings, and it is genuinely free.
One drawback is it provides a number of options in some sections and not always clear which can be disregarded or not. Needs a lot of reading and cross checking but overall if a simple will is required and you have the time would highly recommend it.
By Rachael Keating 19 February 2017
Fantastic free service
By Jane Williams 17 February 2017
Allowing people to use a free will document is more likely to encourage people to make a will ie an excellent thing to do. I only got a bit stuck because I want to give a proportion of my estate to charity, but I think I can work out how to do it - but it would be good to have a clause in to help people.
By Alan Gerrish 16 February 2017
I have used Net Lawman previously and received excellent documents and service. The document was thorough in its content, easy to use and fulfilled my requirements.

Lots of helpful notes too, plus other extremely useful information on your website.
I would thoroughly recommend your product. Thank you!

I wanted to make a will that was as good as my late uncle's and Net Lawman's form enabled me to do that. Other draft versions from other sources I've looked at aren't quite detailed enough, but the Net Lawman's has a table enabling you to specify percentages to different beneficiaries and that's what I was looking for. Recommended!

By Joyce Patton 25 August 2014
My biggest concern with using an on line service was the validity of the document and being able to understand the legal 'jargon'.I decided to use Net Lawman because the document was written in plain English and incredibly easy to understand and complete.
I would recommend Net Lawman to others (indeed I already have!) because of the ease of use of the website and the clarity of the documentation.

This was my last attempt at finding a free Will template, having been caught out on other websites with a demand for money to download or print one. This time there were no such demands.I was agreeably surprised at how simple the Net Lawman document was to understand and modify to suit my own needs. The explanatory notes were very helpful in completing the document and I learned some very useful facts that I incorporated.I have no hesitation in recommending Net Lawman to anyone who wants a hassle-free experience in drafting a legal document.I shall certainly use them for any future needs.
By Jon Coyle 24 May 2014
Thank you for making that document available. As a simple will it served my purposes exactly.

These Documents are so easy to use and to download, also received a good service for free. I have benefitted by using their document. I now know where to come for free documents and easy and understandable form-matt. I would recommend Net Lawman to everyone.
Thank you again for your free service.

The document was easy to read and comprehensive. I should imagine for a simple straightforward will case it would suffice well.

Good, accurate info and easy to understand
By Paul Weekes 02 October 2017
I bought this particular service because, having looked at a number of alternatives on the internet, the will you constructed for me was by far the best I could find and, in my opinion, good value for money.
By Llion Hughes 30 September 2017
Supplied document adequate and easy to understand. The downloaded template worked with open office and Microsoft word and was easy to modify for my needs.
By Colin Miller 10 September 2017
Very simple document with clear language - just what I needed. made getting a will created straightforward as long as it was within the scope of being simple
By John Pollard 05 September 2017
Just seemed to need a few little tweaks. Like I was told each page needed numbering IE page 1 of 3, though I could have been told wrong. Almost 5*.

Found you on line. - No concern about using you as request for will form was straightforward and uncomplicated.
The document gave a good insight into the amount of detail we needed and is a useful template.
By Edward Milton 20 August 2017
very good service but not quite what I was looking for.
By Hitesh Patel 11 July 2017
I would say it needs a bit more space for witness signs and details. My solicitors made the excuse that it was their policy not to sigh DIY documents. Very pleased with the huge savings and information to understand in a simple way. Have already recommended to friends.
Net Lawman responds 11 July 2017
Solicitors tend to act as witnesses only for documents they have prepared because it is hard to charge normal hourly rates for something that is both so simple and takes such little time. You don't need to have a solicitor as a witness - the qualifications of your witnesses are not what makes your will legally binding. All you need are two people who are over 18, not related to you and who don't benefit under your will.
By Claire Wright 03 July 2017
Just seemed pretty good. It would help people more perhaps if it was in a Word .doc format rather than pdf.
By Bulent Izzet 18 June 2017
Good and easy to understand however could incorporate a bit more detail .
I would definitely recommend to friends with a small incomplex estate.
By Alexandra Beattie 08 June 2017
Easy to understand etc but how do I enable editing as could not do this on template. Also do I pay for the template? Thank you.
Net Lawman responds 08 June 2017
Thank you for the review. We're glad the document is easy to follow.
The file is in Microsoft Word format (.docx). If you don't have Word, then Mac Pages, WordPerfect and LibreOffice can all edit this type of file. Also WordPad, which is included in Windows 7 and 10 can also edit it.
The template is free to use. You don't have to pay.
By Karen Saidykhan 25 May 2017
it was not your service the document received was excellent instruction but I needed the actual form to leave my instructions on.

I used your service for a visitor to our village who did not have internet access. I can only say that you provided the document, and the person involved is now on holiday abroad.
By Robert Heywood 15 February 2017
It is free and useful as a template.

By Sue Moore 11 January 2017
Easy to use website, lots of helpful advice online and on the docs and it is the best of the various free downloads I have tried. This aspect is all 5 stars.
I marked down to 4 stars because I would have liked an option to pay a fee to have the resulting will reviewed before it is signed.
By Stuart Paul Kinley 10 January 2017
Very good simple easy document to use. Full advice listed to complete the document.
By Zachary Rubinstein 25 January 2016
some aspects of it were a bit confusing,i simplified it somewhat,
Net Lawman responds 02 February 2016
For wills, we just have to use some of the arcane and archaic language of long ago. We recoimmend that you should not edit for this reason. We have modernised the text as far as we feel is safe.
By Stephen Mount 01 November 2015
Just what I wanted. Simple to use
By Kenneth Hayes 15 March 2015
We are just getting started on the process of updating our Wills; so it was helpful to have guidance in plain English. Still working on the subject (in case there are complications to consider), but we feel we have made a good start.

By Malcolm Firth 10 February 2015
Accessed this document alongside other examples. Whilst yet to fully evaluate, my requirements are very simple and this document would appear to fit the bill. I would certainly recommend to others.
By Christopher John Nicholl 29 November 2014
Your website helped me to draw up a basic Will. Could be more detailed
Net Lawman responds 03 December 2014
We do offer more sophisticated versions too.
By Chloë-louise Golding 28 October 2014
Useful, as expected,easy to find what I needed,free,helped me to write my will.
By Kieran Cullen 06 May 2014
I am very impressed that the document was made available free of charge and is so simple and straightforward.
By Brian Wedge 20 November 2013
Mostly very clear language and straightforward process to download.

What I was looking for
By Frances Baines 20 May 2017
This was not as helpful as I expected, owing to my father's different circumstances. So although it seems a good, simple template I didn't find it useful in my case.
By Jagdish Morar Morar 09 March 2017
While it is easy to use, it does not look as formal as the the document I had obtained from Lawpack.
Thanks for the download.
Net Lawman responds 09 March 2017
The presentation of the wording does not make a difference as to whether it is legally binding. It is the words themselves that matter.
You could change the font to one that looks more archaic or change the colours or write certain words in capital letters, and it would have no impact on the legality of the document.
We have purposefully avoided using words that seem legalistic such as "herein" wherever possible because nowadays they detract rather than add to the strength of the final document.
By Samandar Samari 04 September 2015
It was too short
Net Lawman responds 05 October 2015
You chose the free version. We sell a range of more complicated versions too.
By John Richardson 16 February 2015
because i couldnt open it
Net Lawman responds 16 February 2015
We're sorry that you have had problems. The template is in Microsoft Word format. If you don't have Word, LibreOffice is a free alternative to the Microsoft Office Suite. We can also e-mail you the document in a different format that you should be able to open. Just let us know what type of computer you use.
