When there's a Will there's a Way - Do I Need a Will?

A will lets you say how you want your property dealt with when you die. Once you die, everything you own, and everything you owe, is called your estate.  Anyone of sound mind who is at least 18 years old can make a will. Your will also appoints guardians, lists your beneficiaries, and sets out your last wishes. This presentation informs you about making a will and how your estate is administered.

All your Eggs in One Basket - Relationship Property Pitfalls and Protections

Understanding your rights and obligations is important to all people in relationships, whether married or not. The Property (Relationships) Act 1976 provides how ownership of assets is dealt with both during relationships and after they terminate. You should know how this law applies to you and how to contract out of the legislation if you so choose.

La La Land - What are Powers of Attorney?

We should all have powers of attorney. These are the documents that appoint a person who can make decisions on your behalf if you cannot. As we get older, or if we suffer from unexpected illness, we need to make sure that someone is ready to help us pay bills, sell our house and arrange any medical care on our behalf. When preparing a power of attorney, you need to consider who is best for the different roles – personal care and welfare, and property. We can highlight some of the issues and explain how these important documents work.

Have a Little Faith in Me - Trusts in the Modern Context

Family trusts can/may be used for a variety of reasons. If you are in business they offer protection from creditors, and an opportunity to split income between family members. They protect the interests of future generations and can avoid estate litigation. Many people want to know about whether they will help with rest home subsidies. We have worked with family trusts for many years and can tell you how they work, why you might want them and what they can achieve. We will also look at how you administer a trust.
