Should I make my own Will?

The short answer to this question is no. Your Will may be the most important document you ever have to sign. It is essential that you be properly advised and that you execute this legal document in the proper format. The laws governing the format of Wills are very strict and even a minor divergence from the legal requirements can result in your Will being held to be invalid. You will then have lost your one and only chance to leave your property in the manner you desire. The law will then take its course and an administrator will be appointed and all you possess will be distributed in accordance with the laws of intestacy. In such circumstances, the last person on earth you would like to benefit could end up getting a substantial proportion of your assets. This would not be a very happy scenario if it meant that the person you really loved got nothing.
