The Validity of Wills
In order for a Will to be valid and to avoid challenges it must fulfil the following criteria:
- The person making the Will must be over the age of 18 and of sound mind.
- They must be making the Will voluntarily and no one else should influence its content.
- The person making the Will must understand what it says.
- The Will must be in writing.
- The Will must be signed by the person making it in the presence of two witnesses. The witnesses must sign the will also and this must be done in the presence of the person making the Will.

What our clients say:
The case concluded as hoped. I was at all times treated with courtesy, consideration and empathy by Sarah Young who was at all times professional yet approachable in all matters relating to a very complex case. I personally thank her on behalf of myself and children for the way she conducted my case which brought great relief and a most satisfactory conclusion and will help us move forward.
I would like to say a sincere thank you so very much for all your help in my recent troubles… I would not and will not hesitate to use you again if it was needed. Once again thank you Sarah for everything, especially whilst I was dealing with the death of my mother at the time. It was a pleasure to have met you, and have your guidance. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I have referred a number of contentious probate clients to Sarah and have found her to be professional, personable and extremely able. The clients in question have always been extremely satisfied with the work that Sarah has done for them. I would heartily recommend her to anyone seeking advice in this area.
My first meeting with Sarah Young was really great. She seemed to care about my situation and gave good advice on what we should expect throughout our case. My case has now come to an end thanks to Sarah. I would highly recommend her services to others in similar situations.
