Thanks for your question.


A legally enforceable Will must be in writing, signed by the testator (the person making the Will) intending to validate the Will in front of two witnesses who must then also sign the Will.


The testator must have capacity, which means they must understand the implications of making they will, have soundness of mind and be over 18 years of age.


They must intend make a Will and actually intend to make that particular Will.
