All adults should have a professionally prepared Will.
Your Will is a legal document that takes effect upon your death
and identifies who will manage your estate and who should benefit
from your assets. There are various legal requirements to ensure
your Will is valid and that your wishes can be carried out by those
you have appointed. Significant financial and emotional hardship
may be suffered by your loved ones if your Will is not
professionally prepared by an experienced solicitor. As your
personal circumstances change you should consider reviewing your

The birth of children or grandchildren, the purchase or sale of

delay seeking advice from an experienced solicitor should one of
these events occur.
To die without a valid or complete Will means you die intestate
and your estate is divided and administered pursuant to legislation
enacted by Parliament. The persons who may benefit from your estate
if you die intestate may not be those you wish to benefit
