A will is a legal document which sets out who’ll receive your property and possessions when you die.
When you have a valid will, you give yourself the best chance of making sure your assets go where you want them to. So you should always make a will if you have a family or if other people are financially dependent on you.
A will generally needs three things to be valid:
It must be in writing (whether handwritten, typed or printed)
It must be signed, and
Your signature must be witnessed by two other people who also need to sign the will.
But even where you’ve met these three requirements, your assets can’t be distributed immediately. Sometimes, a court needs to grant probate first.
