  • Why is a will important?

    The best way of avoiding a dispute is ensuring you have a legally valid will that sets out your intentions clearly. When making a will, always consult with a proven wills and estates lawyer. Sometimes dependent on your testamentary wishes it may well mean your will could be disputed but we can advise on this and ways to minimise such disputes. Wills are often challenged when immediate family members such as the spouse or children are excluded from the will or do not receive a proportion of the estate they believe they are entitled to.

    Sometimes the validity of the will may be challenged due to undue influence being placed on the testator at the time they made their will or that that the testator did not have the mental capacity to make a will. Whatever the issue we can assist and provide you with relevant and timely legal advice. If necessary we can take the claim to Court or defend the Court action as the case may be.

    By having a valid will in existence when you pass away ensures your estate is distributed as you desire. A will requires you to name an executor who is responsible for gathering in your estate, paying your debts and distributing your assets as you desire to your chosen beneficiaries. Making a will is important because without one your estate is distributed pursuant to the law and it could mean your assets are distributed to persons you do not want to receive any benefit from your estate. A will should be reviewed regularly and in particular at times of marriage or divorce or when children arrive.

  • What do I do if there is no will?

    If there is no will it may be necessary for the next of kin or others close to the deceased to make an application for Letters of Administration to enable the estate be administered. We will assist in this process.

  • Powers of Attorney
