Will – The distribution of the assets of a deceased person can be recorded before death in a written statement, which is the will. Every person is capable of making a will from the age of 16 and does not need a notary in the case of a handwritten will, as the testator draws it up himself by hand. However, if one wants a notarial will, this must be notarized by a notary public, where the costs for this depend on the value of the estate. For clarity, the document should be labeled “Will” or “Last Will” and include the testator’s signature and a date at the end. If there is more than one will, the will with the most recent date is authoritative.
