The FastDraft versions of our complete wills now include an optional commentary that you can send to the client, explaining the terms of the will. The commentary is currently only available in FastDraft and automatically reflects the choices you make when drafting the will in FastDraft. To produce a will with a commentary, select any of the complete wills with the FastDraft logo under Complete wills and codicils above. Then click on the “Go” button to enter FastDraft, and you will be given the option to produce a commentary on that will.
We would welcome your feedback on how the will commentary works with the will you are drafting. Please send your comments to us via the "Ask a question" button, which can be found on every page.
