Wills in Perth

You need a legal Will

 

Ilegal-will-perthf you don’t have a legal Will prepared and you die intestate (that is, die without a Will), what will happen to your family and loved ones when you’re gone? Don’t assume that people will somehow know what you wanted to happen to your home, your assets or your children.

For example, did you know that if you’re in a de facto relationship and die intestate, your partner may not automatically inherit when you die? Even though legislation recently changed the definition of ‘de facto’ to ‘a marriage-like relationship for 2 years’, there is no automatic inheritance without a Will.

Unless you make it absolutely clear in a Will what your wishes are, you can’t be sure what you want to happen after your death, will happen.

It’s not just about having a Will

It’s also about doing it properly. If your Will hasn’t been witnessed correctly, or it doesn’t comply with all the strict legal requirements, your family and loved ones could still have dreadful – and expensive – problems. You won’t be around to sort it out for them. A legal Will makes sure that your wishes are carried out exactly as you wanted.

Naming an Executor

We suggest that you think about family or friends first as the executor of a Will. You can appoint Haynes Legal as your executor if you wish, but it’s entirely your decision.

Witnessing your Will

If you organise one witness, we can prepare, witness and sign the Will in just one appointment. The Willsathome solicitor will be the other witness, at no charge.

If you can’t organise a witness, we’ll leave the Will with you, plus a Will Signing instruction sheet.

Changing your Will

You can change your Will at any time. The cost for alterations is $100.00 per Will on the basis that you send your marked up Will to our office. If the amendments are complex and a further visit is required by the Solicitor, the above fees reapply.
