Wills, Powers of Attorney & Estate Management
Wills, Power of Attorney & Estate Management are important steps to ensure your future is secure.
Wills & Powers of Attorney
There has never been a better time than now to start your succession planning. Whether you are buying your first home, travelling overseas, having a baby or downsizing in retirement it is important that you have a Will and Enduring Power of Attorney.
A Will allows you to decide who will receive your assets when you die. If you do not make a Will then your assets will be distributed in accordance with a set government formula. If this happens and you die intestate (without a will) then those you want to receive your assets may not. Also your beneficiaries might be slugged with unexpected public trustee expenses that can be avoided with a properly prepared will.
We will secure your will for no charge at our office. We can assist your loved ones when the time comes to cost effectively distribute your estate in line with your wishes. We will advise your executors on all their options including if possible avoiding having to apply for probate in the Supreme Court if thus saving your estate money. If probate is required we will do so in a timely manner including providing up front notice of costs.
Don’t think you need a Power of Attorney? – Think again. Do you have a bank account, own assets? Then it is important that you have a Power of Attorney to ensure these assets can be looked after if you are unable to do so yourself.
Who do you want to make health decisions for you if you cannot make them yourself? Without an Enduring Power of Attorney then these decisions could be made by someone who you do not want making them.
