Is there any downside to executing a will

Resolved Question:

Is there any downside to executing a will by using a 'downloadable' DIY kit?

Thank you for your question.
The downsides to template wills are:
1. You don't get the benefit of individual legal advice.
2. If you don't follow the guidelines you might make a mistake making your will legally invalid and by the time you're dead it's too late to do anything about it.
3. Most template wills are no use for those with high value estates or complex financial affairs.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.

what is the best diy site out there?

Expert:  JGM replied 2 years ago.
I think they're all much the same. You could try Law on the Web which I think is free.
