This is probably the most important document you would prepare in your life as it will have impact on what you wish to leave to your loved ones. Making a will might seem to be easy but there are certain legal requirements which need to be followed in order for the will to be legally binding. Some common errors made by people are given below, when they choose to make their own Will by using reference books or online packages from non-lawyers:
- You may be unaware of the precise requirements necessary to execute the Will.
- Your Will may not specify as to what should happen to your assets should a beneficiary die.
- Your Will may not take account of divorces, marriages and births relevant to the beneficiaries.
In UK the estimate is that 85% of the people do not make a Will or they end up with a non-legally binding Will which holds no value.
