A Will is a specialised document containing instructions about the distribution of the testator/testatrix's (person making the Will) property upon their death. Any person aged 16 years and older who is mentally capable of appreciating the consequences of their actions at the time of making the Will is competent to make a Will. For a Will to be valid it must be executed and witnessed in accordance with legal requirements.
Step 4: If you are happy with your Will, print out two copies and sign the two copies in the presence of two witnesses. Please read under the heading "What are the requirements for a valid Will". If you are unhappy with your Will, email us the changes that you would like us to make.
Step 6: Send the other original Will to our offices via post for safe-keeping. We will look after your Will for you, free of charge. Tell your family and friends that we have an original copy of your Will should they need it. Please also send the following information to us: the full names, identity numbers, addresses and the telephone numbers of the two witnesses so that we can keep this information on file in case a problem arises i.e. the Will is contested by a family member.
