Drafting a Will for a Deaf or Deaf-Mute Person

Drafting a Will for a Deaf or Deaf-Mute Person

According to Polish law, if a person participating in a notarial act is deaf or deaf-mute, the notary is obligated to ensure that the content of the act is accurately known and understood by them. The notary may involve an expert witness in this process.

Additionally, the law imposes a duty on the notary to inform such a person that they can demand the presence of a trusted person of their choice during the act.

To adhere to these conditions, a Polish notary is required to make an appropriate mention in the content of the drafted document, including the content of the notarial deed.

A will drafted in the form of a notarial deed is considered to provide the testator and the heirs with the assurance that it has been prepared correctly in terms of both form and content.

It should be acknowledged that drafting a will for a deaf or deaf-mute person by a notary without adhering to the above requirements is flawed, and such a will is considered invalid.
