Will Template

  • A template of a simple Will (in editable .doc format) is available for download here.
  • Once completed, delete all the words in Italics.
  • Whole paragraphs can be deleted or changed if they do not apply to you or if you want a different provision.
  • We do not recommend deleting the Trust as it is possible that grandchildren or great grandchildren may inherit from you. The Trust is there to protect them and their inheritance.
  • The words “per stirpes” means that the inheritance will follow the blood line down through the generations for any heir who pre-deceases you.
  • When signing the Will make sure that the two witnesses are in the same room as you, that they are not related to anyone mentioned in the Will or may possibly inherit in terms thereof, that they sign every page with you in the spaces provided, and that the date is completed on the last page.
  • We suggest at least two original signed copies of the Will, the one to be kept by you and the other with a friend, family member or attorney. Do not lodge it in a bank safety deposit box as your executor can’t get access to it until he/she is appointed and will have difficulty being appointed without the Will.
  • If your requirements are more complex than this Will provides for, we suggest that you make an appointment with us. We will advise and draft a Will specific to your needs.
