Making a Will
By making your Will you appoint your choice of Personal Representative to carry out your wishes after you die. That person is called your Executor and who holds all of your property as Trustee for your named beneficiaries.
In your Will, you set out what level of provision you will give to your beneficiaries. You may decide one is more deserving than another.
If the Will is carefully prepared, signed and dated you can expect your Will to be carried out, and if necessary, supported by the Court.
If you do not have a Will you are said to die Intestate. In that event the State Laws will determine who your Executor will be and who is to receive your estate. This will add to the costs of finalising your estate.
