Important Things to Consider while Writing a Will

Apr 01, 2017 Share

Trying to make a will? Utterly confused? Writing a will is perhaps one of the most important decisions to make, When it needs a lot of pre-planning, it also requires a number of stratagems to be followed. At the same time, making a will would inevitably involve all your loved ones and help your beneficiaries avoid unnecessary hassles. Once a will is perfectly made, it is not only supposed to give you as well as your clan a peace of mind, but is also meant to secure your properties at the right hand.

However, the common question that seems to bother people is whether they should hire a lawyer to prepare a will. Although it’s not always necessary to take professional help, still an experienced attorney can always aid you with the useful legal strategies. Also, you can find several helpful kits with easy online search or download estate planning softwares for quick instructions.

Nevertheless,  this post, with its handy guidelines, is going to help you in more than one way!

  • Always make sure that you are disclosing all your properties in the will. A legal instrument as it is, your will always gives you the right to dole out your assets (flats, apartments, lands etc) as per your wish. At the same time, it makes immense sense that you adhere to all the necessary terms and conditions stated by the Government, so that you don’t have to confront any kind of discrepancy in the court. Declare all your assets in the will and avert every possible confusion that can even ruin the purpose of making the document.   
  • You don’t have to take a world of stress, in any case you change your mind and feel to make a new beneficiary for your property. You can easily destroy the previous will and file for a new one. Also, you are free to change your mind as many times as you want; the only thing you need to keep in mind is that the previous wills are cancelled according to the legal guidelines.
  • Make sure that your will is simple, specific and precise. Doing otherwise might lead others misread your intentions and your property might get handed over to the wrong heads.
  • Each page of the will should be properly numbered and signed by the witnesses as wells the lawyer who has made the will. It will not only save you from any chance of forgery, but will also lessen the possibility of the paper being claimed by unwanted people.
  • Never forget to draw on the title ‘Last Will and Testament of (your name)’; it will state that your will is legal and valid. Added to this, affirm the fact that you are listing your property out of no stress and sound mental health.

Last but not the least; when you are working on your will, you should also consider a number of essential estate planning documents as well as regulations, so that all your wishes and aspirations are carried out just the way you want.
