Estate Planning

“Death never takes a wise man by surprise, he is always ready to go”  Jean d la Fontaine (1621 – 1695).

A cynical lawyer once wrote: “Never let the assets of a good estate be waisted on the beneficiaries.”

Is your estate planning in order? It is critical everyone, of any age, knows what will happen to their affairs on their death or incapacity.

Many people are unaware that some assets don’t form part of your estate. Assets held in company or trust structures, superannuation assets or any jointly held property etc, may be dealt with independently of your Will.

Attorney and Guardian documents play an important role in the event of incapacity. Choosing the right attorney’s and Guardian’s should not be made lightly.

The best Estate Plans are done when your financial advisor works with your solicitor to develop a comprehensive plan.
