Hayes Solicitors Limited > Legal formalities to make a Will

What are the proper legal formalities to make a Will?

To be valid a Will must comply with the provisions of Section 9 of the Wills Act 1837 and be made by an adult who must sign their Will. Their signature must be made or acknowledged in the presence of two or more witnesses who must sign or acknowledge their signature in the presence of the testator. If the testator is disabled or infirmed it is possible for the Will to be signed on behalf of the testator in the presence of and at the direction of the testator.

If there is a failure to strictly comply with the provisions of the Wills Act 1837 then the Will may be invalid.
