Eligible individuals have the option to register different types of Wills at the DIFC Courts Wills Registry for Non-Muslims (the ‘Registry’) depending on the assets they wish to cover and whether or not the Will is to encompass guardianship arrangements.
There are currently four types of ‘DIFC Will’ that can be registered, referred to as the ‘Guardianship Will’, ‘Property Will’, ‘Free Zone Company Will’, the ‘Financial Assets Will’ and the ‘Full Will’, the key features of which are summarised below.
All DIFC Wills are registered at the Registry. However, all pre-registration checks are carried out by appointment at the DIFC Wills Service (the ‘Wills Service’) and there are a number of locations at which these can take place. To find out more click here.
