According to the Wills Act 1959, there are no special qualifications needed when writing a legally binding Will in Malaysia.

Hence, you do not need to hire a lawyer to create a Will so long as:

1. You are at least 18 years old (21 years old in Sabah);

2. Be of sound mind; and

3. Have the will signed by you and 2 witnesses who are not beneficiaries & spouse of your beneficiaries.

With Koha, you are able to start writing your will at any time. All you need to do is fill in the blanks with the necessary details and generate your will to be signed by your chosen 2 witnesses.
