The requirements for making a will legally valid and recognised by The Supreme Court of NSW include:
- The will must be in writing, either typed or handwritten.
- The will must be signed by the will-maker or by some other person in the presence of and at the direction of the will-maker.
- The will-maker’s signature must be made or acknowledged in the presence of two or more witnesses, present at the same time.
- At least two of those witnesses attest (witness) and sign the will in the presence of the will-maker (but not necessarily in the presence of each other).
- The signature of the will-maker or person signing at the direction of, and in the presence of the will-maker must be made with the intention of executing the will.
Choosing a will kit to prepare your own will should only be considered if your circumstances are simple.
For many people this is not the case.
If the will is not completed by correctly, an application to the Court will be required and this process may cost thousands of dollars.
Obtaining the advice and assistance of a specialist wills and estate lawyer can help reduce the risk of a contested will.
