A Dedicated Will Service in Perth
The Will Professionals is a consultancy service whose sole purpose is to assist you in arranging a professionally written Will that will see your wishes carried out your way, in the event of your death. In conjunction with this we can also assist you to arrange two other equally important documents;
- an Enduring Power of Attorney and
- an Enduring Power of Guardianship.
A Will is a legal document that clearly defines how you want your personal estate to be distributed in the event of you passing away.
To die without a Will (to die intestate) may leave those you care about vulnerable, both emotionally and financially. It can result in your hard-earned assets being distributed in a way that you may have never intended. To die intestate in the state of Western Australia will result in a strict set of legal rules (Administration Act 1903 (WA)) determining who will manage and who will inherit your estate.
This process can take some time and in the mean-time those closest to you could be left in financial hardship, as they will not be able to access funds or accounts in your name to pay the mortgage and bills.
Should you decide to write your own Will, there are many legal matters that you may not be aware of, and therefore, cannot consider them, such as the Family Provisions Act 1972 (WA) which allows certain categories of people who may be eligible to lay claim to your estate. Not taking into account various issues such as this could result in your estate passing to someone that you may not have considered or intended. A professionally written Will can reduce the likelihood of this occurring.
