Does anyone know if you make a will in the UK if it is valid in Singapore? We're PR here but British Citizens....

Hi Amelia - depends on the jurisdiction in which you want the will enacted.
It also depends on the TYPE of will - a "living" will, or a "standard" (i.e. on death" will.
A living will, means many things to many people - but essentially talks about enduring power of attorney should one of you become incapacitated but still legally alive. It covers such things as life support decisions.
A standard will distributes your personal estate. If you are married, this doesn't automatically cover your partner's assets.
Most Singaporean law is similar to UK and AUS, and therefore a caveat can be placed in it saying that you want a particular jurisdiction to prevail. However, specific legal advice should be sought in such matters.
PM me and we'll be able to point you in the right direction then summarise it back to this posting.
Kind regards, P
