Why create a Will

Every adult should have a Will. We can assist you by drafting and finalising a legally effective Will to ensure that, in due course, your estate is left to the people you care about and for whom you wish to provide.

It is extremely important to correctly word your Will, because a poorly worded Will could mean your estate may not be distributed exactly according to your wishes. This can put unnecessary pressure on the family and may lead to unpleasantness, serious dispute or even litigation. If your Will is not valid, your estate will be distributed according to a formula determined by government. This may result in family members who have little or no relationship with you receiving a share of your estate.

A Will can be a simple or complex document, incorporating one or more different types of Testamentary Trusts (such as Discretionary Trusts, Charitable Trusts or Special Disability Trusts) to enable inheritances to pass through a trust structure. We can advise you in relation to the most appropriate type of Will to suit you and your circumstances.
