In Victoria, where somebody dies without a Will, their assets will generally pass to a spouse or to a spouse and their children (in accordance with the intestacy laws). Sometimes this won’t create a problem for the deceased’s family, but more often than not complications will arise.
The most effective way to avoid any potential issues is to record your wishes for the division of your estate, and the most effective way to do this is to ensure you have a valid Will in place. Not only does this provide you with peace of mind and security, but it means the beneficiaries of your inheritance can benefit from the many structuring opportunities available to you.
This session will take a look at:
• what Wills are;
• why you need a Will;
• things you need to think about when putting a Will in place;
• common things that can go wrong.
