Protect the people and things that matter

A will states how you’d like your assets to be divided and your loved ones cared for when you’re gone.

Dying without a will means no clear instructions for those left behind, which can lead to second-guessing or squabbling between family and friends. It can mean time, money and stress to resolve. Even then, the law ultimately decides.

Having an up-to-date will is about leaving well, and taking responsibility for the people and things in your life.

Can a will be digitally signed and witnessed?

For your will to be legally valid, it must be printed and physically signed in front of two witnesses. You don't need a lawyer or JP to witness your will, but your two witnesses must be people who don't benefit from the will. Self-isolation may mean people don’t have access to appropriate witnesses. Public Trust can help in this situation – contact us to arrange something suitable.

Do I have to certify my EPA?

Your enduring power of attorney must be certified to be valid. An officer of a trustee organisation (such as Public Trust) or a lawyer/legal executive must “certify” you are mentally capable and understand what you are authorising. You must sign in front of this witness. This service is included in your Public Trust EPA. Self-isolation means it’s safest to wait until our centres reopen before we certify your EPA, however, if it's urgent, we can still help – please get in touch if this is the case.
