WHAT ARE THE REQUIREMENTS
A WILL MUST BE IN WRITING
A will must be in writing and signed by the person executing the will (testator/testatrix).
It must also be signed by two witnesses who are present in the company of the testator/testatrix while they sign all sign the will.
If a will is not signed correctly, it may be declared invalid.

THE EFFECTS OF AN INVALID WILL
If there is a will but it is invalid, the deceased estate shall be dealt with in terms of the Intestate Succession Act.
This Act determines in which order persons inherit from a deceased person who dies without one.
It can have unfair consequences.
That is why it is so important to have a valid will.
