Preparation of Wills
A will is an important legal document that every person should possess. It is the only way you can ensure that your assets will be distributed in the way you intend after you pass away. It gives you peace of mind knowing that your family and intended beneficiaries will receive what they are entitled to according to your wishes.
If you pass away without a Will, your assets will be distributed according to the statutory formula . This may not only result in an unintended distribution of your estate but may also lead to family conflict and significant expenses for the administrator.
We can guide you through the process of preparing a legally effective Will, including more complex Will structures such as testamentary Trusts or special purpose Trusts depending on what best suits your circumstances. This will ensure that in due course your assets are left to the people that you care about.
