What is a will?
A Will is a document written by a living person that specifies his or her wishes to be carried out after death. However, this is a difficult assignment because the person who writes the Will will not be alive to explain his or her intentions.
After the writer's liabilities have been discharged, a Will specifies what and how the writer's assets will be divided. A testator is a person who writes a will.
Elements of a will
1. You must be at least 18 years old to draught a will, also known as a testator.
2. You must have testamentary capacity, which means you must state in writing that you are of sound mind and that you are drafting the will on your own initiative.
3. You must include a statement declaring the paper to be your will.
4. It is necessary to appoint an executor.
5. At least one provision naming a personal guardian for a minor child and/or at least one provision allocating your estate must be included in the agreement.
6. If the will is not written in your handwriting (i.e., typed), you must sign it and have it witnessed by two witnesses who are not beneficiaries and who witnessed you signing the will.
