Why do we ask our clients to register their Wills?
Let’s first state that Will registration not mandatory, so even a Will that is not registered is legally valid.
However, legal experience tells us that registering a Will is better because:
- It implies that the registrar has verified the writer of the Will and the witnesses by attesting it.
- Many times, a Will is challenged in court on the grounds that it was made under coercion, threat or by a person of unsound mind. Registering a Will can help establish that it was made in free will with full mental capacity. It helps prove genuineness.
- Plus, by registering your Will, your Executor or next of kin will be able to get your Will from the registrar in the case that your original Will cannot be located. It ensures security.
