Frequently asked questions about will

Who can make a will?

Any person over the age of majority and of sound mind.

How to make a will?

The holographic will can be public or secret. In order to be valid it must meet the following requirements: being handwritten by the testator, being dated and signed. A notary can then notarize it. The public will is drawn up by a notary in the presence of two witnesses and is notarized by the notary. The secret will is drawn up by the testator and delivered to the notary in the presence of two witnesses.

Can I change or revoke my will?

The will can be changed or withdrawn at any time. It’s a highly flexible choice.

In absence of will who inherit my assets?

If there is no will, relatives up to the sixth grade can claim their right to a portion of the heritage. It’s important to know that even in the presence of a will the Italian law protect close relatives. In any case they are entitled to a portion of the estate, the so-called ‘reserve quota’. The testator has the power to allocate only the 'available quota' according to his/her will. In the absence of heirs the testator may freely dispose of his/her assets, without any constraint. It’s good to remember that missing both will and heirs, assets are automatically acquired by the state.
