What shall we need to be precise when drawing up a will?
The will is a document setting out how a person’s property will be shared after his death.
The will is in practice "the big deal" in a life of each one of us and that is why it is necessary to be serious. The constitution of a will in a professional and sensitive way can prevent future discord and litigation or even wars within a family.
When making a will, it is important to pay attention to
• Establish a will according to the conditions fixed by the law on inheritance.
• Refrain from doing anything that may later invalidate the will or part of it.
• Concise writing of the provisions of the will so that it is not subject to an interpretation contrary to the will of the testator.
Updating a will
When there is a change in the situation of the property or in the family situation, there is reason to worry about updating the will according to this change (for example: the purchase of an apartment or the death of a spouse). An irrelevant will may thwart the real will of the testator.
So before intending to prepare a will, what should we prepare?
• A draft idea on how to share assets
• A detailed and accurate list of existing assets: real estate, cars, bank accounts, savings, insurance, trusts, as well as anything else that would have any value.
• A simple medical expertise that the testator maintains a health line that does not affect his mood and lucidity.
• It is important to take advise with a lawyer specializing in family law exclusively for the drawing up of a will, in order to avoid future legal disputes between heirs.
