We are involved in drafting wills for people of all ages and backgrounds, and suitable to all situations and circumstances,
to provide what happens to their estate and property after their death. Particularly where couples with young children need
to provide for any eventuality, which may occur, to ensure that their children will always be properly cared for. This is
usually accomplished by appointing trustees and Guardians
All Testators must be aged 18 years or over and be of sound mind. The Will must be signed at the end by the Testator and a
minimum of two witnesses must be present at the time when the Testator signs the Will and then the witnesses must sign in
the presence of the Testator and usually, but not necessarily, in the presence of each other. All Wills must be dated.
The main steps in administering an Estate after death:
- Completing an Inland Revenue Affidavit with all details of assets and beneficiaries.
- Sending an Application to the Probate Office and obtaining a Grant of Probate or Administration.
- Paying necessary taxes and distributing the assets.
