A notarial will is read by the notary to the testator alone or, if the testator chooses, in the presence of a witness. Once the reading is done, the testator shall declare in the presence of the witness that the act read contains the expression of his last wishes.
The will, after being read, is signed by the testator, the witness or witnesses and the notary, in each other's presence.
