We live in a world where people try and claim things, that a deceased person, wouldn’t want them to have.
Where peoples hard earned assets (an estate even) can end up going to:
1.) The wrong people
2.) The state
How fair is that?
Not very so we recommend that everybody use a UK based solicitor to draw up their Last Will and Testament.
There are thousands of places that do this online but they are not qualified lawyers, experts or specialists. The services that they provide are absolutely appalling. We have had to correct so many that we thought we would send you to the places that we trust.
Keep in mind these are solicitors so you can rest assured that the wills that they draw up for you are written by the best and also with your wishes legally binding in place
How wills be changed and revoked?
Law Retrieval System
Changes and revocations of wills must be done by the will in person in accordance with the statutory forms and procedures, and no representation shall be allowed when using will writing solicitors.
There are two ways of changing and withdrawing wills in both express and presumption. The express way of changing or withdrawing a will means that the will will indicate the change or revocation of the will by express means. Where a will is changed or revoked by express means, it shall be made by way of establishing a will in accordance with the law. The meaning of changing or withdrawing a will in the legal form of a will means that the effect of the change or revocation of the will cannot occur. Although the form of changing or withdrawing a will does not require that it be more strict than the form adopted when the will was established, it may not change or revoke the notarised will in accordance with the provisions of Article 20, paragraph 3, of the current Inheritance Law.
Therefore, the change and revocation of notarised wills must be notarised. The presumption of change or revocation of a will means that although the will has not expressed the change or revocation of the establishment of the will by express means meaning, the law presumes that the will will be changed or revoked according to the action of the will. This presumption of law is not allowed to be overturned by the parties by counter-argument.
The circumstances in which a presumed will be changed or revoked are as follows: 1 If the will-let has made several wills and the contents are in conflict with the law, the presumption shall be changed or revoked. Article 20, paragraph 2, of the current Inheritance Act provides that: If several wills are made, the contents of which are in conflict, the final will shall prevail. Because the probate has a will that contradicts the contents, it is assumed that the will is the one who will withdraw the previous will in the future, so the final will shall prevail. Article 42 of the Opinions of the Supreme People’s Court on the Application of the Law of succession of the People’s Republic of China stipulates: “If a probate makes several wills in different forms that conflict with the contents, the last notarised will shall prevail;
“According lying, if there are several wills in different forms, including a witnessed will, the final witness will shall prevail, as other forms of will cannot be changed or revoked.” 2 If the pre-life behavior of the will contradicts the contents of the will, it is presumed that the will will be changed or revoked. The act of living in life referred to here refers to the disposition of his property before the life of the will. Article 39 of the Opinions of the Supreme People’s Court on the Application of the Law of succession of the People’s Republic of China stipulates that the act of the will before life is contrary to the meaning of the will, and that the will shall be deemed to have been revoked or partially revoked if the property disposed of by the will is lost, partially lost or transferred before the beginning of the inheritance. For example, a will in a will designates a property to be inherited or given to a person by an heir, and the will-take-back himself sells or gives it to another person.
The contents of the will relating to the disposition of the property shall be deemed to have been changed or withdrawn. 3 If the will is intentionally destroyed, the probate is presumed to have withdrawn the original will. For example, the will does not make another will to revoke the original will after making the will, but only destroys the original will himself, which means that the will has abolished his original will.
However, if the will is not destroyed by the will himself, but destroyed by another person, it cannot be regarded as a will to cancel the will;
The relevant basis
There are several wills, the contents of the conflict, subject to the final will. A self-written, substitute, recorded or oral will may not be revoked or altered.
