Perhaps it is some while since you last checked the provisions of your will?
There have been major changes to inheritance and superannuation law in recent years and expert advice in those areas is essential when considering the bequests in your will.
As family circumstances change over the years, it is advisable to review your will from time to time to ensure that it still represents your wishes. Some of those circumstances might include:
- Birth of children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren
- Death of an executor or beneficiary
- The sale of property that was the subject of a specific bequest
- The need for protective provisions for beneficiaries suffering from some incapacity
- Change of name of a charitable organisation named in your present will
- Divorce, re-marriage
Failure to make a will can result in the assets of your estate passing in a way you did not intend and in many cases causes difficulties, emotional distress and additional expense for your family. The modest cost of making a will can save your beneficiaries the extra worry and expense and give you peace of mind.
