Estate Planning & Deceased Estates
Don’t be one of the 60 per cent of Australians who do not have a valid Last Will and Testament. The team at Lynn & Brown Lawyers can help you to prepare a Will so that in the event of your death, your estate will go to the people you want to provide for.
Your Last Will and Testament is an important document. It contains your instructions as to what is to happen with all of your property including real estate and personal property (collectively called your “estate”) once you pass away. It is also your opportunity to express your wishes on matters that may affect your family should you pass away. The preparation of a Will requires the consideration of several key issues.
- Who do you need to provide for?
- How will your estate be divided?
- Who would you like to be responsible for your children?
Another important consideration is who you appoint as the executor of your Will. An executor is the person who will be responsible for carrying out the instructions you have put in your Will. Your executor is also responsible for ensuring that any debts owed by you are paid once you pass away.
