If you are in Perth and you are reading this, you are already ahead of many individuals who never took the time to get a Will done and/or understand why it is important to have one drafted up. You should congratulate yourself! In this blog post we will briefly explore why you should see a Perth Wills Lawyer at BMS LAW to have your Will drafted up.
In Perth, Western Australia, most laypersons (e.g. non-lawyers) would think that when they die, their money, assets and personal belongings automatically transfers over to their next of kin. In a perfect world yes, in reality and especially under the laws of Western Australia, there are exceptions to this general understanding. For this simple reason, at BMS LAW we strongly recommend to all our clients that having a Will in place is absolutely important and necessary.
Why should you have a Perth Lawyer draft your Will?
It is simple to say that the general rule known by most is that a lawyer crafted Will is better than a self-prepared Will. Although we would be inclined to agree with that general rule, it is not always the case. We recognise that there are always exceptions to the general rule.
Think about these two questions:
Would you want to risk your deceased estate (e.g. your assets and belongings) falling into the hands of someone you never intended on giving anything to?
Would you want a long dragged on fight in court by relatives and friends and others (e.g.ex-spouses etc) over your deceased estate?
Almost always the answer to the above simple questions would be a firm "no". In arriving at this point, hopefully you see that having a Will in place will hopefully address the two questions above and provide you peace of mind.
Average costs of a lawyer drafted Will in Perth, Western Australia
