  Can a Will Be Drawn without a Lawyer Signing or Authenticating it?

Trina Steenkamp, South Africa

Posted: April 22 2013

I want to draw a will but before I do so would like to know if I need a Lawyer to help me or can I just write it myself and have it signed by witnesses.  Will it still be legal that way?  

  NDBS Answers:

A will is a document that is effected when you cease to exist or pass away.  For the will to be honored by the living there must be two witnesses who sign and they don’t have to read it but attach their signatures, the witnesses must not be beneficiaries.  As long it is signed there is no need for a lawyer to authenticate it for it to become valid.  Anyone who is sane can draw a will and choose where to keep it where it will be accessible when that person is dead.

I was advised to apply for Rescinding of the judgment against me. What does rescind of judgment mean?

  NDBS Answers:

The rescission of judgment is when the High court cancel the earlier judgment made and there must be compelling reasons to do so.  This is common in people who had judgment against them for failing to service their debts.  Consideration for this action is made once it can be proven that procedures where not followed when the case went to court and one needs an attorney to present the case in the High court.  If your name was handed to credit bureau it will be removed once the judgment is rescinded.
