Having made a Will, if your family members or your named Executor(s) do not know that you have made a Will or how to locate it, this will defeat the whole purpose of making a Will. It is therefore important to inform your Executor(s) and/or your close ones of the whereabouts of your original Will.

If you have engaged a lawyer to prepare your Will, you may also request your lawyer to lodge at the Wills Registry of the Public Trustee Department a requisite form. The form states brief particulars of your Will (without its contents), so that upon your death, your personal representatives can make a search at the Wills Registry on whether you have made a Will. This will facilitate your family members in locating your Will or finding out whether you have made one.

If you marry or re-marry, your Willi is nullified or cancelled unless the Will was made in contemplation of your marriage.

You should review your Will if any of the following event happens:

  1. if you change your name or anyone mentioned in the Will changes his
  2. if an executor or trustee dies or becomes unsuitable to act due to age or ill-health
  3. if a beneficiary dies
  4. if you subsequently sell or part with any property mentioned in the Will
  5. if there is any significant change in circumstances, for example, when you acquire property or assets which have not been mentioned in your Will

It is advisable to review your Will regularly or where there is changes to your personal circumstances.

You should never attempt to change your Will by crossing parts out or adding words in or by attaching anything to it. If you do so your Will may become ineffective or invalid. If you wish to change your Will, either make a fresh Will to revoke and supersede the earlier Will or prepare a Supplemental Will (“a Codicil”).

Your original Will or copy thereof cannot be deposited at the Wills Registry. To deposit your Will information at the Wills Registry, please login to www.iptoonline.gov.sg.
