Legal Wills

Resource Centre

The #1 misconception is : “A Will must be written by a lawyer“.

The requirements of a valid Will are set out in the Wills Act and it is not a requirement that a Will must be drafted by a lawyer. The Law Society has indicated the same in their website:

http://www.lawsociety.org.sg/forPublic/YoutheLaw/MakingaWill.aspx

In fact, anyone can write our own Will following the formalities and format provided in books, journals or websites. The main concern is : What if our situation is slightly more complicated than what the template can offer? In this case, you need to speak to someone with some practical experience to provide you an opinion. Always seek advice when you are in doubt.

Education counts, exposure counts more, experience counts most.

Expedite Legal Process

Legal Wills

CPF Savings

A CPF member can state the beneficiary by making a nomination. If there is no valid nomination, the CPF savings will be distributed by the Intestacy Law.

Insurance Policies with S49M or S49L Nomination

Policy proceeds will be distributed to nominees named in the policy.

Immovable Property at a Foreign Country
