If your parent has written down their wishes and it is entirely in their own writing, we will treat it as a holograph Will.
A holograph Will is a Will that is in the testators writing with no other written words on the document.
One of the most famous holograph Wills is actually found at the University of Saskatchewan. In that Will, a farmer was out farming, cut off his arm and bled to death. He wrote his Will on the fender of a tractor saying ‘I leave everything to my loving wife,’ and that fender was cut off and probated in court.
So, a holograph Will will suffice; it isn’t the best solution, but it’s definitely better than a Will kit.
