McDonalds or KFC anyone?

A Canadian court has recently upheld that instructions written on a McDonald’s napkin was a man’s last will and testament.  So, could you do the same? In theory, yes you can, provided that the will is properly signed by you and two witnesses. There are very strict signing rules in the UK and if you get it wrong, the whole will is invalid whether it is written on a McDonald’s napkin or written professionally. It is for this reason that we really like to oversee and guide our clients through the signing process.   

If you have any queries about wills or the signing process, then give one of our experts a call. I am based at our Chelmsford office and can be reached on 01245 453835 or
