We are three family members: My wife suggested that I should write a Will. How do I start with writing a Will?

Will is an important document that helps you to distribute your assets, even when you are not around. But, before putting pen to paper and starting writing your Will, it is best to first start by making a list of your assets and liabilities- your bank accounts, immovable properties that you own, mutual funds, provident funds, insurance policies, digital assets, and others.

Once you have finished the list, take a moment to think about how you want your assets to be distributed. You can assign a property to a single beneficiary or multiple beneficiaries.

In addition, you must also think about who will be secondary beneficiaries in case the primary beneficiaries are not there when the Will is executed. 

You need to name an executor of your Will- someone who will execute the wishes of your Will if you are not there anymore. Additionally, you can name a secondary executor who will take over if the primary executor is unable to perform his/her function due to death or insanity. 

And finally, find witnesses to the Will. Keep in mind that these witnesses must not be a beneficiary of your Will. It is advisable to choose witnesses who don’t have a personal interest in the Will. 

Even if you have named a nominee for your bank accounts, mutual funds, or more, you should also write a Will, as a nominee acts as a caretaker of the asset and a Will always prevails.

This is how you can start writing your Will. But, we at AasaanWill have made this process much more simple and you can finish the whole process within 20-25 minutes. Here is how AasaanWill helps to make a Will “aasaan”.
