Is there any legal requirement to make a will?
While there is no legal requirement to make a will, if you pass away without a will in Singapore, your assets will be distributed in accordance with the Intestate Succession Act. This means that the assets will be divided among the surviving family members according to a predetermined legal formula, which may not necessarily align with your specific wishes. As such, it is highly advisable for you to create a will to ensure that your assets are distributed according to your wishes after your passing.
