Who can make a Will?

Author: Marwah Law |

To make a valid Will you must be over 18 and have testamentary capacity. This means you must understand:

- what a Will is and understands that it will be legally binding upon your death;

- what property you own and its approximate value; and

- to whom you owe a legal or moral obligation to look after if you should die.

Your Will may be invalid if anyone has forced you to make your Will a certain way. Your Will may also be invalid if, at the time you make it, you suffer from any insane delusions affecting your powers of reason or judgment or if you lack testamentary capacity.
