Charlotte has recently found out that her late father’s Will was not duly stamped by the Inland Revenue Board and hence she believes that the Will is not valid because it was not duly stamped. Is she correct?


A Will need not be stamped or affirmed. A Will is valid as long as the testator has executed the Will in the presence of 2 witnesses and does not contravene any section under the Wills Act 1959.

So, how much did you know about this Legal Myth?
