ABSTRACT
J.H. writes: A few years ago I made a will. One of the people who witnessed my signature has since died. Is the will still legal, or do I have to make a new one? R. C. replies: The subsequent death of one or both of the witnesses would have no effect on the validity of a will. In the rare case where a query arises as to whether a will has been properly signed, a witness may have to be contacted to provide information. Any surviving witness would be able to do this. Even the death of a person named as executor does not invalidate a will. Those who inherit under the will can apply to the court for a grant to administer the estate.
