Terms and Conditions relating to the Wills Premium Service
The Which? Wills premium service ("Premium Service") will be provided to you under the following terms and conditions.
1. What we will do
We will provide you with the Document Preparation Service, a document assembly and drafting system to create a will document ("will"), in accordance with our terms and conditions for this service.
We will provide you with our Legal Review Service, a review of the answers that you provided when you used the Document Preparation Service, to check that the will you have created complies with required legal formalities for the will (once properly executed) to be acted upon in the future, in accordance with our terms and conditions for this service;
When the Legal Review has been completed, we will have your will printed and bound. We will use reasonable care and skill when providing the printing and binding services.
We will print your will:
- in black and white;
- on white paper.
We will bind your Will:
- using a hot glue binding method;
- inserting grey textured card with a window for a front cover; and
- inserting grey textured card for a back cover
Your printed and bound will shall be sent via first class Royal Mail to the address you give to us when registering to use the Document Preparation Service. Please ensure that you provide us with your correct address details when you complete the online registration form. Wills can be posted to any address; however the price includes postage to an address within the UK only. Where you require postage outside of the UK, we will provide you with a quote for the additional cost. Please note that our wills are not suitable if you live permanently outside of the UK.
It will usually be posted within three working days of when we complete the Legal Review; however, at times of high demand it may take longer. If you haven't received your printed will within five working days of when we complete the Legal Review, please contact us at email@example.com. When your printed and bound will is sent to you, you will be provided with an envelope that you can use to return it to us once you have executed it.
We may at our absolute discretion and for an additional fee provide the following additional services;
- • a replacement printed and bound copy of your will where you inform us that you have lost the will we sent to you;
- • a further printed and bound copy of your will corrected in accordance with your instructions, where you identify that the printed and bound will we sent to you contains errors made by you;
- • expedited Legal Review.
Please contact us if you require any of these additional services and we will confirm whether we will be able to provide them and the fee that would apply.
Once you have returned your executed will and any documents that are to be stored with it, we will arrange for them to be securely stored for one year through the Wills Storage Service, in accordance with our terms and conditions for this service.
2. What you will need to do for us
You should read the terms and conditions that apply to the Document Preparation Service and the Legal Review before you start creating your will and follow all instructions we provide.
To create your will, you will be asked a series of questions and the answers you give will automatically generate the content of the will. It is essential that you provide the correct information (this includes information in relation to the identity of any parties or signatories, their age or capacity) and carefully check that the answers you give are accurate and fully reflect your wishes. When you click to submit your will for Legal Review, this is what we will send for printing and binding.
It is your responsibility to ensure that your will is properly executed in accordance with any instructions that are provided to you.
So we can store your executed will and any documents that are to be included with it, you need to return it in accordance with the instructions we provide.
3. Paying for the Premium Service
Payment is due when you complete the Document Preparation Service process. Any additional service fees (for example an expedited Legal Review, and/or to provide a replacement or amended copy of your printed and bound will) are due at the time that additional service is requested/offered and a fee for providing the additional service(s) has been agreed.
One year's storage is included in the price you pay for the Premium Service. We will then charge you the standard annual fee including VAT for continued storage beyond the first year, in accordance with our terms and conditions for the Wills Storage Service.
You may retrieve your will or other documents from storage at no additional cost to you once each year. We charge a £10 retrieval fee for each subsequent retrieval in each calendar year.
4. Other important information
(i) Cancellation and refunds
You have the right to cancel this contract within 14 days without giving any reason. This cancellation period will expire 14 days after you make payment for the Premium Service. You will, however, lose the right to cancel if the service is fully performed during this cancellation period. Please note we endeavour to conclude the Legal Review within five days of a document being submitted for review, and printing and binding within three days of concluding the Legal Review.
If you cancel, we will refund the payment you made for the Premium Service subject to a reasonable deduction for any parts of the Premium Service that we have concluded prior to you cancelling. For example if you cancel after we have completed the Legal Review but before your document has been printed, we will provide a refund less the amount you would have paid had you bought the document with Legal Review only. We will also send you the reviewed document.
To meet the cancellation deadline, it is sufficient for you to send your communication concerning your exercise of the right to cancel before the cancellation period has expired.
We reserve the right to terminate the Premium Service agreement by giving you 60 days written notice. If we terminate the Premium Service, you will receive a full refund, less an appropriate deduction to reflect the provision of the Premium Service to you up until the point of cancellation. If we need to terminate, for any reason, we will ensure that your will (and any documents stored with it) is returned to you as set out in these terms.
(ii) Limits on our responsibility and liability
We will not have any responsibility for the following:
(a) any delay in the delivery of your printed Document; and
(b) any information you provide to us that is used in the preparation, printing and binding and dispatch of your printed Document.
(iii) Data you provide relating to another person
(iv) Third party service providers
We may engage the services of third parties to provide or assist us in providing the Premium Service. You agree that we may pass on to such third parties that we engage for this purpose any data or information that you provide to us when using the Premium Service. By using or purchasing the Premium Service, you confirm that you have also obtained the consent of anyone else that you or any other party provide data and information about when using the Premium Service, to their data and information being passed on to a third party in the way described above.
We may need to change these terms in the future. We will write to you with at least six weeks' notice if these terms are changing, so that you can decide whether to continue the Premium Service.
