What is a valid Will?
A valid Will requires at a minimum:
- The Will must be in writing, (generally printed or typed but this is not essential, and a handwritten Will is also valid).
- The Will must be signed and dated by the Testator (the person who has written and executed the Will).
- The Will must be signed by two adult and independent witnesses. Note: The witnesses must not be beneficiaries of the Will.
Note: Marriage and divorce may affect the validity of the Will.
