More in this section

A Will is a legal document which states how a person wishes their property is to be distributed at death, and names one or more persons, the executor(s), to manage the estate until its final distribution.

It is an incredibly important document as it ensures your estate is distributed as you would like it to be, and that your loved ones, as well as your assets and property, are protected.

The price of Wills can vary dramatically but cost should not always be the deciding factor. The right Will should be tailored to your personal circumstances, assets and property so that it can be a valuable strategic planning tool to ensure your estate is protected.

Will writing

A Will is about more than just money:

  • You can name a trusted person to deal with your estate after you pass away. This person will have the authority to manage your assets, pay your outstanding debts and distribute your estate according to your wishes.
  • A Will protects your interests, it helps your loved ones and it ensures everything is done as you’d wish.
  • You can identify special possessions or family heirlooms that you would like to go to a specific person.
  • You can express wishes for your funeral.
  • If you have children under 18, you can nominate a legal guardian to care for them.
  • Wills can also be used for tax planning, to protect your assets for future generations and maximize what is passed on to your loved ones.  

The right Will for you will depend on your personal circumstances, assets and property and can be a valuable strategic planning tool to ensure your estate is protected.
