Will Kits – Are Will Kits OK?
There have been many Court cases where they Will-maker did not fill in the form correctly, meaning that their intentions were not able to be carried out.
Common mistakes include faulty signing, incomplete witnessing, failure to deal with all possible estate matters, not delaing with all of your assets, inadequate identification of beneficiaries and using imprecise wording, leaving your intentions unclear.
Prospective beneficiaries may prefer the interpretation that favours them most and often will pursue their claim in Court.
The cost of Court action will be many times greater than the few dollars saved by choosing a Will Kit over having the Will made professionally.
