It is most important to you, and your family, that you have a current Will. With a Will in place, your assets will pass to those family members and friends that you intend to benefit. You can nominate a Trustee to administer your affairs, a Guardian to take care of any infant children, and give your personal effects and family heirlooms to loved ones upon your death. You can also nominate your burial or cremation wishes.
Without a legal Will, your Estate is managed according to the Successions Act, and your personal wishes, in most cases, will not be met.
Having a legal Will also assists your family, who will know exactly what your wishes are, easing the burden on them during their difficult time.
Most Wills are relatively simple to prepare and incur only a small fee from us. More extensive Wills can be prepared including Testamentary Trusts, Estate planning and Tax minimisation in large estates.
