When is a Will Valid?

As soon as your new Will is signed and dated it is immediately valid.

However, the key thing to a will is its execution. You must ensure your new Will has been executed correctly, which is one of the major benefits of using a solicitor like us (as opposed to buying one of the “off the shelf” solutions that are available).

Although off-the-shelf or “do it yourself” Wills can be cheap, they run the risk of being invalid due to inaccurate execution, which is the biggest reason for wills failing.

If you are in any doubt about the validity of your Will, consult with a professional solicitor as soon as you can.
