For How Long is a Maryland Will Valid?

As a general rule, a will governs the distribution of assets only after the testator dies. Any changes to a will that are made during the testator’s lifetime will be valid. A will is not active until the owner of the assets passes. For example, if a testator wills her home to her son, but during her lifetime transfers that deed to her cousin; in that case the original disposition to the son lapses because it is not an asset owned by the testator at the time of her death. The best course of action is to consult an estate planning attorney.
