A will is a written document which tells your family and friends how your assets are to be distributed after you die. Such assets can include real estate, motor vehicles, valuables such as jewellery or antiques, and even your pets.
- the maker of the will (the testator) must be 18 years of age or older;
- the maker of the will must have the mental capacity to make a will at the time it is made;
- the will must be in written form;
- the will must be signed by the will maker with the intention of making a will while observed by two independent individuals over 18 years of age who also then sign the will (as witnesses).
