Don’t put it off – set some time aside to write or review your Will
Everyone aged 18 years and over should have a Will – however the NSW Trustee & Guardian’s statistics show that over 45% of people in New South Wales do not have a Will!
Between 18 September 2011 and 24 September 2011, the NSW Trustee & Guardian will be running Good Will Week, its annual education campaign to encourage adults in New South Wales to have an up-to-date and legal will.
We will also be encouraging our clients to review their existing estate and succession plans and to prepare or update their Wills.
Not having a Will, or having a Will that is invalid or incomplete can result in intestacy and further complications for your family and loved ones that you leave behind in dealing with your estate. Those complications are unnecessary and can be avoided with a few simple steps – starting with having your Will prepared for you by a suitably qualified professional.
