Choosing your witnesses carefully is extremely important. Choose neighbours, friends or work colleges.

The execution of your Will is the signing of your Will by yourself and your two witnesses. Correctly signing your Will is important as this makes it legally binding, however incorrectly signing your Will could invalidate it.

Take care to sign your Will in the following way:

  1. Ensure your witnesses ARE NOT beneficiaries from your Will as their gift will be forfeit. A Witness CANNOT benefit.

  2. Ensure your witnesses have the mental capacity to understand what it is they are signing. They do not need to know the contents of your Will.

  3. You should sign your Will first and date it in the presence of your witnesses. If you sign your Will when the witness/witnesses are not present you should acknowledge that it is your signature.

  4. Your witnesses need to sign in your presence and date.

  5. You will need two witnesses who will be able to verify that you knew what it was you where signing and that you signed of your own free will should your Will ever be contested.

  6. Ideally Witnesses should be over the age of 18.

  7. Your witnesses can witness your will separately, however it is recommended that they sign in each other’s presence.

A Will Avoids Intestacy

If you do not have a Will your estate falls into  intestacy
You won't have a say on how your estate will be distributed.
And people may benefit who you would rather did not resulting in your loved ones losing out.

There are lots of Will Writers, but only one dedicated.

Making a valid Will is the best way to protect your loved ones.

A Will is cheaper and quicker than intestacy.
