You should update your will when your circumstances change but it's also good to keep the following in mind:
Keep an eye on when laws are amended such as the Relationship Property Act or the Family Protection Act.
You must update your will after getting married because your existing will becomes invalid.
It is wise to review your will every 5 years to make sure external factors haven't affected any of your instructions.
Having a current will give you peace of mind that your loved ones will have a simple estate planning experience once you're gone. You can make updates as and when you need to and review any of our other services for estate planning here on our website.
