Make your documents valid

Make your will valid

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.

Certify your EPA

Your enduring power of attorney must be certified to be valid. An authorised officer of a trustee organisation (such as Public Trust) or a lawyer or duly qualified 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.
