Testamentary Formalities in Hungary
Hungarian private law — in line with an international trend — has slowly been relaxing the formal requirements relating to wills. This was already noticeable in the comprehensive regulations of 1876, and even more so when the Civil Code entered into force in 1960. This chapter begins with discussions of freedom of testation and testamentary formalities, and the incidence of testate successions. It then covers common requirements for wills, private wills, public wills, oral wills for emergency situations, and legal consequences of formal mistakes.
