MyExpatWill™ - Sample Expat Last Will and Testament

To create your Expat Will to cover any assets that you hold in the UK, US or Canada, you simply step through our interactive service. We guide you through the process with online help each step of the way.

Once you have stepped through our nine sections, you can print the document at home as many times as you wish – until you get it exactly the way you want it. The document should then be signed in the presence of two witnesses, who are not beneficiaries, to make it a legally binding Will accepted by the probate courts in the UK, US or Canada.

Last Will and Testament

THIS IS THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT of me, Mr. John Peter Smith, of 123 Main Street, Guguletu, Western Cape, South Africa, with respect to the disposition of only that property owned by me at the time of my death and situate in Canada, and I declare that I have prepared a separate Will disposing of all my other assets.


I HEREBY REVOKE all former wills, codicils and other testamentary dispositions made by me, but only to the extent that they are inconsistent with, or relate to, the property covered by a Will from the same jurisdiction.


I NOMINATE, CONSTITUTE and APPOINT my wife, Jane Smith, of 123 Main Street, Guguletu, Western Cape, South Africa, to be the Estate Trustee, Executor, and Trustee of this my Will, provided that there should be at all times one (1) Estate Trustee, Executor and Trustee of this my Will so that in the event that my above-named Estate Trustee, Executor and Trustee shall have predeceased me or shall survive me but die before the trusts hereof shall have terminated or shall be unable or unwilling to act or to continue to act, I appoint, in the following order of priority, such one of the persons hereinafter named as shall not already be acting and as shall be able and willing to act to fill the vacancy so created, namely, my friend, Cindy Jones, of 166 Bayview Avenue, Apt. A-43, Toronto, Ontario, Canada, then my brother, Albert Smith, of Minneapolis, Minnesota, U.S.A.. References to "my Trustee" in this my Will shall include each Estate Trustee, Executor and Trustee of my Will, my estate or any portion thereof who may be acting as such from time to time whether original or substituted and whether one or more.


I GIVE, DEVISE, AND BEQUEATH only that property of mine situated in Canada to my Trustee upon the following trusts, namely:

Debts, Expenses and Taxes

  1. To pay out of my general estate my debts, funeral and testamentary expenses.

  2. To pay out of my general estate all income taxes, estate, inheritance and succession duties or taxes whether imposed by or pursuant to the law of this or any other jurisdiction whatsoever that may be payable in connection with any property passing on my death or in connection with any insurance on my life or any gift or benefit given or conferred by me either during my lifetime or by survivorship or by this my Will or any codicil hereto and whether such duties or taxes be payable in respect of estates or interests which fall into possession at my death or at any subsequent time.
