Yonderlife is complementary to your will. You don't need a will to use Yonderlife, but why don't you have one? Your will is your legal protection. It is fundamental. Your executors will need to submit your original will to the Government to obtain grant of probate along with various other forms and a valuation of your estate. Your estate may have tax liabilities.
It's always a copy in Yonderlife. The original will either be in paper format with you, your solicitor or in a storage service.
Where's the original? We think it is of use to consider now how much your solicitor is going to charge your estate in the event of your death? If in doubt just get in touch with us.
By uploading a copy of your will to your Yonderlife account, you can leave instructions of where to find the original and also share its contents with loved ones and trusted others. This will help them understand exactly what you wanted, answer any questions whilst you are still with us, and maybe iron out any tricky issues
The best format to upload a copy of your will is as a PDF. You can either use the Adobe Acrobat family to manage your file or search for a free online tool.
If you are working with a paper copy you can look to scan the document, however why not make life easy for yourself and take a picture of each page with your phone?
The free online tools you have just searched for will collate any photos or scans and create your PDF copy.
Once back in Yonderlife, simply click on 'Manage Estate' and upload your file.
