Will Writing in Singapore

At PreceptsGroup, we understand that crafting a comprehensive and legally sound Will is a crucial step in securing the future for you and your loved ones.

Our Will Writing Services are designed to guide you through this important process with expertise, empathy, and precision.

A Will is both a love letter and an effective Estate Planning instrument. It is a legal document where you list down your wishes on how your assets are to be distributed. It also specifies the persons whom you entrust with the responsibility of taking care of your assets and the proper distribution to your beneficiaries upon demise.

For parents with young children, you can also decide the best person to act as the children’s legal guardian in the unfortunate occasion where both parents are not around.

Writing a Will in Singapore is an important step of taking charge of your wealth distribution. A Will is an important legal document that outlines your wishes regarding the distribution of your assets and the care of your dependents after your death. While the specific reasons for creating a will may vary depending on your individual circumstances, here are some general reasons why you might consider doing your will in Singapore:

Be Prepared

Why You Need a Will in Singapore


A Will allows you to specify how you want your assets to be distributed among your beneficiaries. This ensures that your wishes are followed, and it can help prevent disputes among family members.

of Dependents

If you have minor children or dependents, a Will enables you to appoint a Guardian to take care of them in the event of your death. This can be crucial for their well-being and ensures that someone you trust will be responsible for their upbringing.

of Executor

You can nominate an Executor in your Will, who will be responsible for managing your estate and carrying out the instructions in your will. This should be someone you trust and believe can handle these responsibilities. An option you can consider is to appoint a licensed Trust company like Precepts Trustee to act as the corporate Executor in a time of distress.

Intestacy Laws

If you pass away without a Will (intestate), Singapore’s intestacy laws will determine how your assets are distributed. Creating a Will allows you to have control over the distribution of your assets and ensures that your wishes are followed.


A well-structured Will can help minimise the tax implications on your estate. Estate planning can be complex, and consulting with a professional can help you make informed decisions to minimise tax liabilities.


If you have specific charities or causes you are passionate about, a Will allows you to include provisions for charitable donations. This ensures that your assets contribute to the causes you care about.

Probate Process

Having a clear and valid Will can simplify the probate process for your beneficiaries. It provides a legal framework that helps expedite the distribution of your assets and reduces the administrative burden on your loved ones.

of Mind

Knowing that you have a well-drafted Will in place can provide you with peace of mind, as you have taken steps to ensure that your wishes are known and will be respected.

Frequently Asked Questions About Will

A Will is the last document that articulates your instructions and wishes.

It is a legal document that empowers you on the distribution of your assets when you have passed on.

This may result in a drain of your loved ones’ emotional state, time and financial resources.

By delegating decisions regarding the disposition of an estate to the state, individuals risk encountering various complications. This article delves into the importance of having a Will and outlines the circumstances under which it becomes a crucial tool for ensuring the smooth transfer of assets.

One might wonder if everyone requires a Will. Some individuals assume that possessing few assets or lacking marital status exempts them from the need for a Will. However, irrespective of one’s asset portfolio or marital status, having a Will remains significant for many reasons.

A Will provides you with the opportunity to clearly define

  • Who receives
  • How much each beneficiary will inherit
  • What happens in scenarios where the primary beneficiary is no longer around
  • Determine the date, amount and conditions of the distribution
  • How your loved ones will

When you are married, having a Will is important to outline your intentions with a new family unit formed. A marriage would revoke your previous Will, as well as your CPF Nomination.

Given the intimate nature of the relationship, there will be assets that are held jointly, it is essential to specify what happens to these assets should there be a common disaster.

Parents with children should prioritise writing a Will.

You are the best person to decide on the most suitable candidate to be the legal guardian of your children. Designate a Guardian, guaranteeing the protection and welfare of your children, instead of leaving this to the Court to decide for you.

By stating your preferences in a Will, you can ensure that your assets are distributed according to your intentions. Furthermore, a Will enables parents to appoint an executor to handle asset distribution and allowance to the Guardian caring for your children in your absence.

Individuals with a positive net worth, regardless of their marital or parental status, greatly benefit from having a Will. Writing a Will allows for precise allocation of assets, leaving no room for errors or potential disputes among loved ones. By creating a well-defined plan for asset distribution, individuals can ease the burden on their loved ones during an emotionally challenging period.

While young individuals without dependents or significant assets may not require a Will immediately, it is advisable to establish one as soon as their circumstances change. For instance, acquiring assets or starting a family necessitates the creation of a Will to ensure proper management and distribution. Updating the Will periodically as circumstances evolve is important too.
