Legal Requirements for your Will to be valid

In order for a Will to be made valid, they’re a few things that it must be.

  • An Adult must make the Will; they must be aged 18 years or older.
  • The Will must be made by a person who is “mentally capable” at the time of giving instructions for the Will.
  • The Will must be made voluntary and without any pressure from ANY person.
  • The person who has made the Will must sign the Will and two people must witness it. They also must sign the Will. The Will must be dated when it has been signed.

If you believe the Will hasn’t met the above requirements, it may mean you have to Contest the Will.
