Wills

A Will is a legal document that only operates after your death to direct how your assets should be distributed. A properly drafted, up-to-date Will is the only way you can be sure your assets will be dealt with and your loved ones cared for in the way you choose.It is tremendously important that you have a valid Will. Having a valid Will gives you the power to distribute your assets to whom and in what manner you wish.

If you die without a valid Will, intestacy provisions will automatically apply. If this occurs, your Estate may pass to people who you do not wish to benefit and people you do wish to benefit may miss out.

Preparing a valid Will with one of our lawyers is the best way to ensure you are aware of all your testamentary options including:

  • Who you want to look after your Estate and act as your executor
  • What items and assets you can leave in your Will and to who and when
  • Payment of debts or liabilities
  • Whether different types of testamentary trusts may be appropriate
  • Guardianship of children
  • Whether you wish to be cremated or buried 

If you already have a Will, it may be time to review your Will as your circumstances may change and your Will no longer fulfills your testamentary wishes.

will

The Executor then distributes and disposes of (i.e. sells or transfers a property) the assets of the deceased person as required. Commonly, the deceased would have a pre-existing Will in place that outlines their wishes including but not limited to the distribution of their assets, money, and heirlooms.

Our Probate services

Whilst it’s possible for an individual to apply for a Grant of Probate with the Supreme Court of NSW independently; due to the complex nature of this process, many people wish to engage a Solicitor to guide them on this endeavor to provide them with peace of mind that everything is being done correctly and fair to all of the beneficiaries. If a loved one has passed and you do wish to engage Hunter Legal & Conveyancing to guide you through obtaining a Grant of Probate we will require the following documents:
    • A copy of the Will (if the deceased was a previous client of ours, we have this on-hand)
    • A copy of the Death Certificate
Hunter Legal & Conveyancing possess the expertise to guide you through the probate process. We focus on long term, positive outcomes for our clients by providing you with an individual service with compassion and understanding in this already stressful time.

For the intricate details of applying for a Grant of Probate please call our team to speak with our Estate’s team on 1300 224 828 or if you wish to do some reading prior please refer to the Supreme Court of NSW website link where they answer frequently asked questions as their timeframes are updated.

At HLC we understand the importance of doing the full job so if any property has been left in your name we will assist you with transferring the property title as part of our service and if you have any questions once probate has been granted we are more than happy to help.
