Key Considerations When Making a Will
Is it simple to make a Will?
The requirements under the Wills Act are relatively straightforward, but there are other considerations in making a will, such as whether the joint property can be passed and whether it is practical to carry out your wishes. Seeking professional legal advice in WA will ensure your will is done correctly and your family will have no regrets after you pass away.
Cost of making a will with a lawyer?
Making a will at Foyle Legal is easy. For a simple will, the cost of making a will is fixed.
It costs $350 to create a will for a single person, and it costs $500 to make a will for a couple.
Foyle Legal offers substantial discounts on Power of Guardianship and Power of Attorney when it is completed together with your will.
Executor of your Will
If you do not make a will then anyone interested in your estate can apply to be the executor of your estate. This is a very important position and you should choose a responsible person you believe will carry out their duties properly.
What should be in a Will?
When you make a will, the Will should specify that it is your last Will and that you revoke any previous Wills.
It should appoint one or more persons to be your executor(s). Your
Will should provide for payment of funeral expenses and any debts. It should then state how you want your property distributed, either by naming the item and to whom it is given, or by giving a person a certain amount or percentage of the total value of your property.
If your Will contains specific gifts, it should also state what is to happen with the residue (remaining assets) of the estate.
What happens if I get married or divorced?
If you get married or divorced this has the effect of revoking your will unless you make it in contemplation of marriage or divorce. The best way to ensure you will is current is to consult a specialist wills lawyer in Perth.
Leaving property in your Will
In your will, you may leave any part of your property, including personal items, real estate or amounts of money to particular people (special rules apply to jointly owned property). While it is not necessary to list every item of your property, your will should deal with all your property. The best way to do this is to use expressions like “all of my property of whatever kind” or “all my remaining property of whatever kind”. If your will fails to deal with all your property, any property not dealt with will be divided among your relatives according to law. This kind of division might not be what you wanted and may lead to disputes about the entitlement of certain relatives to your assets.
There are some assets you can’t leave to another person in a will. For example, assets from your superannuation or insurance fund (you usually nominate a beneficiary when you take out the policy). You may wish to make special arrangements for a number of things, for example:
- disposal of your body or organ transplants;
- payment of your executor;
- the occupation of your home;
- the release of a debt owing to you; and
- a gift to charity.
You can generally write these types of things in ordinary language so that they can be understood.
Challenges to a Will
If you are a dependent of someone who has died and has not received a fair share of the deceased’s property under the will or under the Administration Act 1903 (if there is no will), you may be able to challenge it.
If you are a person who wants to create a will, it is best to have your will professionally prepared by a lawyer to reduce the chance of your will being challenged. Some companies may use home visit wills, free will service for pensioners WA, or free wills for seniors WA as the advertising headline to attract attention. It is important to understand the lawyer’s qualifications, and what exactly the service is being offered first before trusting a free source.
Power of Guardianship / Enduring Power of Guardianship
When you are making a will with Foyle Legal, Foyle Legal helps clients to prepare Power of Guardianship or Enduring Power of Guardianship in conjunction with wills.
Power of Attorney
How much does a power of attorney cost in Australia can vary largely based on the complexity.
As a complementary service, we provide fixed-fee service for power of attorney when you are making a will with Foyle Legal.
Foyle Legal helps clients to prepare Power of Attorney in conjunction with wills.
Where can I store my will?
Where you store your will is up to you. Many people decide to store their will at home. Some banks will store your will for you but this is becoming increasingly uncommon. One common place to store your will is with the WA Will Bank operated by the Public Trustee in Western Australia. It is free to store your will with the WA Will Bank if you take it there yourself. You will need to complete the WA Will Bank Deposit Form to store your will with the WA Will Bank.
Do you need a lawyer to make a will?
You do not need a lawyer to draw up a will. We have clients who tried to make a will online, or do it yourself will with a will kit at home but found the experience quite daunting. They just never know if what they included in the will is legal and enforceable. Comparing the cost of writing your own will, and the fixed fee will service we provide for simple wills, most of our past clients prefer to have a legal will drawn up by a lawyer to ensure peace of mind.
Remember – creating a will is about knowing your wishes will be carried out accordingly without disputes!
Don’t simply go with the easiest or cheapest option when creating a will.
