Leaving this mortal coil without a legal will causes significant difficulty for those left behind. You may not think that you have much worth fighting over.
If you own a property, you simply must consider having a will. Even if you don’t own a house or apartment, don’t forget that your loved ones may need some guidance on dealing with your quilting stash, or your ill-advised (but 100% sick) guitar collection.
To make matters more complicated, your superannuation must be dealt with correctly (and separately from your will) in order for it to pass in accordance with your wishes.
It is always advisable to have an Enduring Power of Attorney in place, so that someone you trust (and who accepts your trust) can act for you if you lose the capacity to make decisions for yourself.
There is no excuse for not sorting this out straight away. Here at Canberra Legal Group you will have access to the nation’s brightest minds in estate planning, tax and superannuation – and they want to give you a free consultation to discuss your wishes.
