Follow this guide to find out everything you need to know about making a holographic will and discover our models and examples of wills to download to write your own at home.

Understanding the holographic will

The holographic will is a document written entirely by hand by the testator.

To be valid, it must be signed and dated by the person who wrote it. 

It pleases a lot, because it does not require the presence of a notary.

This type of will is legal in France and offers great flexibility in terms of estate planning.

How to make a will at home?

It is perfectly possible to write a holographic will at home, as long as certain formal rules are respected.

Here is the step-by-step procedure you need to follow:

1. Handwriting: 

The will must be entirely handwritten. Printouts, typed texts or computer modifications are not permitted. 

2. Date and sign : 

The will must be dated (day, month and year) and signed. These two elements are essential to determine the validity of the will.

3. Clearly express your wishes: 

To avoid any ambiguity or potential conflict, be as specific as possible in the designation of your assets and beneficiaries.

How to write a will without a notary?

🖋 Writing a holographic will without the help of a notary is completely legalThis requires great precision to avoid any ambiguity that could cause problems after your death.
The presence of a notary is not necessary to write your holographic will. However, it may be useful to consult a sample will drawn up by a notary to ensure that your will meets the appropriate legal standards.

While making a holographic will is a relatively simple process, it is important to note that registering your will with a notary is strongly recommended. Not only does this give added security to your last wishes, but it also allows your will to be easily found after your death.

If you decide to keep your holographic will at home, make sure it is stored securely and that someone you trust knows where to find it when the time comes.

⚠️ A lost or damaged will can make your last wishes null and void.

Registration and conservation of your will

Although a holographic will can be made at home, registering it is an essential step.

You can file your will with a notary who will be responsible for keeping it and registering it in the Fichier Central des Dispositions de Dernières Volontés (FCDDV).

This step ensures the traceability of your will and guarantees that it will be accessed after your death. ✅
