What is Will?

Let's talk about Estate Planning first...

Estate planning is a legal and effective method of making arrangements to dispose and manage your estate at death through the use of wills, trusts or other devices. It is not just for the wealthy or those who are on the verge of death. With proper estate planning, you can decide how you want your assets to be owned, managed and preserved during your lifetime and to be disposed when you pass on.

Now, we talk about Will...

A Will is a legal instrument which a person sets out his/her wishes as to the distribution of his/her properties (when comes to property, it is not just limited to landed property, it includes your personal properties like shares, cash, jewelleries etc.) after he/she dies. As a Will only comes into effect after the testator dies, the testator can create a new Will to override his/her old Will during his/her lifetime.
