Why choose IFG

Cheaper

Most solicitors will charge over £500 for a will, and many will charge over £1000. We’ve woven technology into the process to allow us to bring you a complete will service for just £98. See our FAQ at the bottom for why IFG Wills is better than a free will template too.

Faster

You can write your IFG Will in the privacy of your own home, within 20 minutes. No need to arrange appointments with solicitors. We’ll have the will with you within the week.

Better

Each IFG Will includes a full breakdown of your Islamic inheritance, is signed off by a Mufti and is drafted by City-trained lawyers.

FAQs

Can I change my will once you have written it?
Why should I pay £98 rather than use a free Islamic will template?
What if I submit my will and need to make changes to it in the few days following?
Do you offer professional executor services?
Do you offer probate services?
Are your wills structured to avoid inheritance tax?
Do you offer a spousal will?
You guys are corporate lawyers who presumably can charge a lot – why is IFG Wills so cheap? What’s the catch?
What if I have a change in family personnel or buy a house – does your will become invalid?
Are Islamic Marriages accepted under English Law?
Do you offer trust-based and tax-efficient wills?

Can I change my will once you have written it?

Yes! You have two options:

  1. You can pay £30 whenever you need to change your will in the future.
  2. You can subscribe for just £10 a year to make unlimited changes your will whenever you need.

Why should I pay £98 rather than use a free Islamic will template?

With a free will template you do not get any of the following:

  1. legal review of your drafting (~70% of the wills we see contain legal errors before we correct them). Without those corrections your will won’t actually say what you think it says.
  2. mufti review of your proposed bequests (~50% of the wills we see contain Islamic errors. Without our guidance their will would be inadvertently unIslamic).
  3. Someone to ask questions to before, during and after the will-writing process.
  4. Basic tax-planning advice. Around 30% of our wills benefit from our basic tax-planning tips that can save £10,000s.
  5. Someone to sort out the headache of the drafting and reviewing so you only have to sign on the dotted line when you get the document.

We cover in detail the limited circumstances where it makes sense for you to use free Islamic wills in this detailed guide here.

What if I submit my will and need to make changes to it in the few days following?

You can change your will as many times as you need to in the week it takes for us to get your will over to you.

After that if there are minor changes, we can do those as well as a courtesy.

Are your wills structured to avoid inheritance tax?

The nil-rate band for inheritance tax is £325,000, there is an additional nil-rate band for your home of £175,000 for assets inherited by your family, and any assets inherited by your legal spouse are also tax-exempt. This adds up to ~£1m  of tax-free inheritance. All this means that 94% of people do not have to pay inheritance tax at all when they die.

So for 94% of people the standard IFG Will is suitable.

However if you do have a substantial estate or need a trust-based will for other reasons, we now offer that service. Our trust-based will is a robust, tax-efficient solution designed in collaboration with a leading wills barrister from Ten Old Square Chambers.

Do you offer a spousal will?

Yes. Each spouse has to get their own will written.

We offer a £10 referral bonus and a £10 discount to the person who referred. For spouses this amounts to over 20% off the cost price.

You guys are corporate lawyers who presumably can charge a lot – why is IFG Wills so cheap? What’s the catch?

Both of us (Mohsin and Ibrahim) have quit our corporate legal careers to focus full-time on IFG as we believe strongly that there is a need for strong personal finance education and resources for the UK Muslim community. If people like us do not take a risk and sacrifice a bit, no one will. IFG Wills is a subsidiary of www.islamicfinanceguru.com.

IFG Wills works for us from a commercial perspective as a lot of the will production is automated using sophisticated programming. This means our job is cut down from laborious copy-pasting to just pure legal review. Ultimately this then saves you guys £100s of pounds.

What if I have a change in family personnel or buy a house – does your will become invalid?

Our wills are written so that the will remains valid in case of such changes. However no will is ultimately completely future-proof and we recommend revisiting your will every few years.
We offer an update service for £30 one-off, or unlimited updates for £10 a year.

Are Islamic Marriages accepted under English Law?

Islamic marriages (nikah contracts) are typically not accepted in English courts.
We’d strongly recommend getting a legal marriage. Particularly relevant for Islamic wills.
Our wills are designed so you can get the will done, and get legally married afterwards without it nullifying your will.

Do you offer trust-based and tax-efficient wills?

The IFG trust-based will is a tax-efficient will designed and crafted in collaboration with a leading wills barrister.

It is ideal for people with an estate over £325,000, or who have mean-tested benefit recipients among their heirs, or who would like to retain a lot of flexibility and discretion as to how their estate is divided up after their passing.

We charge £348 for this solution, less than a third of what a high-street solicitor would charge. We can do this because we use technology to bring down our costs, which we can then pass on to you.

For estates over £2m, you should seek specialist tax planning advice but under that, the IFG trust-based will is perfect.
