Is it compulsory to deposit my Will information in the Singapore Wills Registry?
The WILLS Registry, maintained by Singapore Academy of Law (SAL), is a confidential registry where testators (people making a will) or their solicitors can deposit information on WILLS.
They keep the following information under the WILLS Registry
1) Details of the person making the WILL i.e. testator.
2) Date of the WILL.
3) Details of the person who drew up the WILL.
4) Details of where the WILL is held.
They do NOT keep the actual WILL or a copy of the WILL in the registry which should be retained by yourself or your representative. Please also note that it is NOT compulsory to deposit your WILL record with the registry. The validity of your will does NOT depend on whether you have deposited your WILL record with the registry or not.
