Any person of 14 years or above is entitled to act as a witness to a will, if at the time of witnessing a will, he or she is not incompetent to provide evidence in a court of law. However, a beneficiary to a will must not sign as a witness, since he or she will then be disqualified to receive any benefit from that will.
