Can I prepare my own Will?

The precise wording of a Will is a specialised and important legal task.

The ordinary meaning of words is not necessarily the same as their legal meaning. Ambiguous wording is extremely common in home-made Wills and may result in substantial cost and delay in having the Supreme Court resolve the ambiguity. Therefore, preparing a your own Will is not advisable.

A Will must conform to strict legal requirements otherwise the Courts may decide it is not valid. If this is the case, your assets will be distributed according to a predetermined formula and not as you intended.

Anyone who is not legally qualified risks making a mistake, creating uncertainty or losing opportunities for good estate planning.
