From time to time we hear horror stories of people who have not prepared Wills, dying intestate. This can result in an expensive exercise for an Administrator to settle the estate.
Wills should be reviewed regularly, something like every 5 years is recommended. In particular when getting married, divorced and with changes in family circumstances such as sudden death with close relatives who benefit from a Will. Always seek legal advice to make sure you have a valid & binding Will and to assist in avoiding challenges by aggrieved family members.
There are circumstances where a person may need the assistance of the court to prepare their Will. In these circumstances legal advice must be obtained to guide the Will instructions correctly.
