Some Do’s and Don’ts of WILL Writing!

DON’T produce a will yourself! Corrections and errors in a Will can make it invalid and much more expensive to prove the Will is valid.

DON’T have a beneficiary as a witness in the Will.

DON’T construct the Will so that it can be challenged.

DON’T lose the original Will. A copy of the Will is not the same thing.

________________________________________________________________________________________

DO consider the legacy you leave behind. How will your family talk about your decisions?

DO have a valid Will. The cost involved to deal with your estate without a Will can be 10 x more expensive than the Will itself.

DO ensure the Will is kept safely and able to be located.

DO review your Will every few years especially if your relationship dissolves!
