Last Will and Testament

last will and testament












A “WILL” can be defined as “A legal statement written by an individual, stating the manner in which his or her wealth may be distributed after his or her demise.” A person making a Will is known as a “TESTATOR”.

In case a person dies without making a Will, he/she is said to have died intestate.
