Updated January 11, 2023

A South Carolina last will and testament is a legal document, created by a testator, that provides detailed instructions on how to distribute his or her financial assets, real and personal property, and any other assets upon the testator’s death. The testator’s estate can be transferred upon their death to relatives, friends, charitable organizations, or whomever the testator determines should inherit certain property or assets.

It is required under South Carolina law for the document to be signed by the testator in the presence of two (2) or more competent witnesses. Though optional, a testator can have the will acknowledged by a state-authorized notary public to further verify its legality. This document may be amended or revoked at the testator’s discretion.
