Fact Sheet 3:

Preparation of Wills, Powers of Attorney, Appointments of Enduring Guardian

 

It is important to ensure that you have an up to date Will, Power of Attorney and Appointment of Enduring Guardian. While Will kits may be effective there is considerable skill in drafting a valid effective Will. When giving instructions for the preparation of any of the above documents we would need the following information :

Your full name and address
The full name and address of your spouse/partner (if applicable;)
The full name and address of the person(s) who will be your executor and trustee (in the case of your Will).
The full name and address of the person(s) who will be your Power of Attorney and/or your Enduring Guardian.


Of course we can give you considerable assistance and advice regarding the most appropriate way to draft your Will, Power of Attorney or Appointment of Enduring Guardian. For instance if you have substantial assets it may be that you need to consider a Will that creates testamentary trusts in favour of the beneficiaries. We would be happy to discuss your needs if you would like to contact us.
