When making your Will it is necessary to appoint at least one Executor. Your Executor has the legal and administrative task of sorting out your assets and debts after your death and making sure that your wishes as outlined in your Will are upheld
To be valid, the person making the Will must be mentally competent, the Will must be correctly signed and witnessed, and show no evidence of tampering. The witnesses to the Will cannot be beneficiaries, or related to beneficiaries and must be over 18.
You should certainly review your Will after any major events such as a property purchase or sale, death of a beneficiary or if your assets change significantly. We also recommend that you review your Will every couple of years just to make sure that it is still relevant to your circumstances.
Most Wills are of a routine nature and are not expensive. In our experience the most difficult part of making a Will is lifting the phone and making the appointment with us. We will make the whole process seamlessly efficient for you.
