Who is eligible to serve as a Witness?

Many people have questions about the witnesses to their Will, such as what they do and who they can be.

When you’ve finished writing your Will, have it signed, dated, and witnessed by two people who aren’t beneficiaries.

This is referred to as ‘Attestation.’ After you’ve completed this, your Will should be legally binding.

Witnesses include:

• You must be at least 18 years old.

• You must not be married to or related to any of your Will’s beneficiaries.

• You can’t be blind (so they can see you sign your Will)

A next-door neighbour is an example of someone who could serve as a witness in your Will.
