What is a Will?

A Will is a written document that states who you want your assets and money (“the estate”) to go to when you passed away. As it is a very important document the law specifies what will be recognised as a Will. It is a temporary document and can be changed at any time by a subsequent Will or a Codicil during your lifetime.

It does not distribute your assets immediately upon the making of the Will, but takes effect after your demise (death).
