Will clauses

It is best to get legal help in making a will. Clauses within a will may deal with a range of things including:

  • the revocation of an earlier will
  • who is appointed as an executor
  • to whom the estate is given
  • if any cash legacies will go to particular beneficiaries
  • what will happen with the remainder of an estate after cash legacies and other debts and expenses are paid out
  • what will happen if a spouse or other beneficiary dies before the testator
  • the disposal of the body of the testator
  • the care of minor children, and
  • the signing and witnessing of the will

The clauses included in a will depend on the circumstances and the wishes of the testator.
