Formalisation of a last will and testament

Every person may draw up a last will and testament, which means to determine his/her heir in advance and decide on the future of all the property remaining after his/her death. Under the law, the will shall be drawn up by a notary.

A testator may write a last will and testament by him/herself and visit a notary to notarise this document afterwards, or draw up this document directly at a notary’s office. In case you need to draw up a last will and testament and there is no notary around, a last will and testament may be certified by the following persons:


Testament may be certified by the following persons

  • In settlements — respective municipal authority represented by the authorized official;
  • in hospital, retirement homes — chief physician, deputy chief physician, doctor on duty;
  • in voyages such authorities are vested in a ship captain;
  • in expedition trips — the chief of expedition;
  • for in-place forces, where there are no notaries and authorities nearby that are entitled to similar notarial acts, a last will and testament of militaries, as well as members of their families, is certified by the commanding officer of the military unit;
  • a last will and testament of persons in places of executing punishments, as well as in detention centres — head of the institution.

A last will and testament is always drawn up in written and signed by a testator personally and exclusively; therefore, the presence of a testator is a must anyway.

There is a type of a secret last will and testament. A testator submits a secret will and testament sealed in an envelope to a notary; and then this envelope is signed by a testator personally, signed and sealed by a notary. A notary puts this envelope in another envelope in the presence of a testator and seals it. When an inheritance case is opened, a notary sets a date for opening a last will and testament and then opens an envelope in the presence of heirs.

Please remember that a testator has a right to withdraw a last will and testament in full or draw up a new one at his/her own discretion, which may cancel a previous one, partially or in full.

Question-answer::

What documents do I need to draw up a will?

To draw up a will, you should have a passport and TIN. You also need to know the correct spelling of the full name and the exact date of birth of the person for whom the will is drawn up.

How to revoke a will?

In order to revoke a will, you do not need to notify the persons mentioned in the document. It is enough to issue an order to revoke the will or draw up a new one. In the second case, the old will be set aside automatically.
