Probate & Administration
If you are an Executor of a Will, there are many obligations and duties and responsibilities that flow as a result. Many people don’t realise that there are potential liabilities as well if the Estate affairs aren’t management properly or in a timely manner.
That’s why it’s important to get good advice early on and have an experienced team take care of the paperwork and process.
We are happy to help you navigate through the difficult period after a loved one has passed on, doing so with professionalism and the sensitivity required.
Powers of Attorney & Enduring Guardianship
Having a structure and system in place in the event of illness or injury or incapacitation is so important and yet so many people neglect or avoid that. In the same way as having insurances on home or your car ‘just in case’ something happens, you should also consider how important it is to have appointments in place to manage your personal affairs ‘just in case’ something happens to you.
We will assist in drafting and advising on;
- Powers of Attorney
- Enduring Guardianship,
- “Living Wills”
- Advance Directives
We can help you with the formal processes required for valid appointments so that your wishes and views are taken into account and followed even if you’re not well enough to tell anyone.
