27 Reasons to
Make a Will

Destroyed Wills

If someone decides to make a new will or revoke an earlier will, they should ensure that the earlier will is in fact destroyed. Burning is usually the best way to destroy a will and make sure that there is no remaining legible text.


A problem arises however if after destroying their will, a person fails to make a new will before they die. In this case the person dies intestate – as if they had never made a will in the first place.


The situation is however quite different if somebody else destroys your will without your permission. In these circumstances, your will is still valid – however there may be significant practical problems in actually proving the contents of the will – unless there are copies of the destroyed will.
