Wills & Powers of Attorney
Have you planned for what happens to your assets after your death? Passing away without a will means that your assets will be distributed in accordance with State intestacy legislation. This may not be what you want, and may not be in the best interests of your family. By making a will, you can be sure that your family is provided for and that your assets are distributed in accordance with your wishes
Have you considered what may happen to you and your assets if you become unable to deal with your financial and medical affairs? By appointing someone to act as your attorney and guardian, you can be sure that someone you trust will deal with your affairs in your best interests.
Preparing your will and making provision for the distribution of your property after your death can often involve difficult decisions and sensitive and private matters. We offer you confidential and experienced advice, and the preparation of a will that complies with all of the many technical requirements of the law so as to ensure that your affairs and estate can be dealt with simply and efficiently by those you leave behind. We will also keep your will in safe custody free of charge, if you wish.
If you’ve made your will with the Public Trustee or a trustee company such as Tasmanian Perpetual Trustees Ltd, you may not be aware that they charge very substantial commissions for the administration of your estate (in additional to their professional fees). As a result, the value of what is left for family members and others under your will can be significantly depleted. At Archer Bushby we charge no commission, and your estate will only pay for the work we do.
