Is your Will Valid?
A Will is one of the most important documents that you will sign in your lifetime. Creating a valid Will is not as simple as most people think, and as a result we advise that it is not wise to utilise the ‘home-made’ or ‘newsagents’ Will. This document will state how you wish for you assets to be distributed after death, as well as other provisions such as the care of your children if they are under 18 and any other special requests. Simple mistakes, such as style of wording, signing incorrectly or not having the Will witnessed properly can cause a Will to be invalid. If your Will is not valid, it cannot be guaranteed that your final wishes will be carried out as you have requested.
To make this process easier and to reduce the risk of your most precious people and possessions in life not being taken care of or distributed according to your wishes, The Quinn Group has introduced the Will Kit. This handy, easy to use kit contains simple step-by–step instructions to help you provide the necessary information required to draft your Will. Once we receive the completed Will Kit containing your information, we prepare a draft Will and forward it to you for your review and consideration. Should it be in accordance with your instructions, arrangements can be made for executing (signing) it in compliance with legislation. Upon completion, we can store you Will in our Safe Custody holdings.
The Will Kit also contains a booklet of information about Wills, Estate Planning, Power of Attorney and Enduring Guardianship, which will help to further inform you of exactly what the Will you are creating represents.
As an added convenience for you, we also provide our To Those I Love booklet which has been created as a way to accurately detail you personal wishes, life’s achievements, and other personal and estate information. Once completed, we can also hold this together for you with your Will in Safe Custody.
Here at The Quinn Group our experienced team of lawyers are able to assess your individual situation, discuss your options and ensure that you are totally satisfied with, and understand the content of your Will. Quinns can also store your Will in our Safe Custody at no additional cost.
