Will and Estate Services Definition

Making a Will

This process involves legally documenting how you wish your assets to be distributed after your death. It ensures your property and possessions are allocated according to your specific desires and provides clarity and guidance to your loved ones.

Enduring Power of Attorney

This legal document authorises a chosen individual to manage your affairs, including financial and property matters, if you become unable to do so due to illness, injury, or incapacity. It remains effective even when you lose mental capacity.

Deceased Estate

Refers to all the assets and liabilities left behind by a person after their death. It includes property, money, and possessions, which are managed and distributed according to the deceased’s will or, if there is no will, by the law.

A legal document issued by a court that validates a deceased person’s will and authorises the executor to administer the estate. This includes managing the estate’s assets, paying debts, and distributing the remainder to the beneficiaries.
