Real Estate Practice : Lesson 1196


If a will is written but there is no witness to the composition of the will this type of will is commonly referred to as a formally executed will.

Is the description of this type of will considered to be a true or false description ?

Take your time. The solution is posted below the wildlife photo.


A. False

A will which is handwritten and not witnessed is called a holographic will.

Some states actually recognize this type of will even though it's unwittnessed.

The will has to be dated and signed by the testator but it doesn't have to be witnessed.
