What is knowledge and approval of a will?


In addition to having testamentary capacity the person who makes a Will has to also know and approve the contents of the Will. This is a separate requirement for the Will to be valid. This does not mean that the testator has to understand every legal term used in the Will as if they were a qualified lawyer or judge, but they do have to understand the contents and effects of their Will.

If you believe that when a person made their Will, they did not know and understand and approve its contents due to:-

  • Any physical or
  • Mental impairment
