A Will is a legal document that outlines how you want your assets to be distributed after your death.
You can only include assets that are owned exclusively by you in your Will.
That is, assets in your sole name.
Assets which you own as ‘tenants in common’ can also be included.
Example of assets not covered by a Will include:
It’s important to get the right legal advice when preparing your Will.
This will reduce the chance of a dispute between your beneficiaries and ensure your wishes are carried out.
Please contact us here to speak with a Sydney Wills and Estates Lawyer.
‘Executor’ is the title given to a person/s you appoint in your Will to manage your estate after you die.
Your Executor has responsibility for carrying out your wishes as set out in your Will.
You should consider carefully who you select as your Executor/s.
Your Executor should be someone you know very well and who you trust implicitly.
Common choices are spouse, children, siblings or other trusted relatives or friends.
Anyone over the age of 18, and anyone under 18 who is married or contemplating marriage, can make a will, provided they have testamentary capacity.
Persons under the age of18 who are unmarried can make a will with the approval of the Court; this can be advisable for young people who are earning large sums of money in modelling, in show business or arising out of their sports activities or from commercial endorsements.
The Court can also authorise a will to be made for a person lacking testamentary capacity under Part 2.2 of the Succession Act.
There is no public registry of wills in NSW, but a number of private providers offering will registration facilities are in operation.
NSW Trustee & Guardian offers a secure storage service for wills, power of attorney and enduring guardianship documents called Will Safe.
We offer services in Will drafting ranging from a simple Will to the most complicated Will.
Given the sensitive and confidential nature of a Will we pride ourselves in our confidentiality and ethical attitude in this area of law.
Making a Will involves making a written declaration describing how your property will be disposed of after your death.
This allows you to leave your assets and any other possessions to which you are entitled, at the time of your death to nominated beneficiaries.
When a person dies without a will, their property is disposed of based on a statutory formula.
Upon your death, the executor you have specified in your will applies to the Supreme Court for probate, meaning they will receive title to your property and dispose of it in accordance with your will.
If you do not have a valid Will, you will die as an ‘intestate’.
This means your property will be distributed amongst your relatives (or to the State itself) based on a formula in the Succession Act 2006 (NSW).
A will generally needs three things to be valid:
We need the following information to draw up your Will:
Probate is a court order made by the Supreme Court of NSW which confirms that the will of the deceased is valid and gives permission to the executor to distribute the estate as described in the deceased person’s will.
If you are an executor named in a will you must apply for probate if there is real estate owned in the deceased’s sole name or as tenants in common with another person, or if any asset in the estate cannot be transferred without probate. The deceased’s property cannot be distributed until you apply for and are granted probate by the Supreme Court of NSW.
Depending on the type, size and value of the assets located in New South Wales it may not be necessary to obtain a grant of probate in New South Wales. There is no statutory requirement to obtain probate in every case. Some asset holders will often release smaller amounts without the need for probate to be obtained.
There are a number of steps you must take before the court will grant probate:
Publish a probate notice
Wait 14 days
Make a probate application
Respond to Requisitions from the court
After the grant, if there are no problems with your application and documents, and after any requisitions are finalised, probate should be granted.
If a person dies without leaving a Will, then the authority to deal with the estate is not obtained with a Grant of Probate, but with a Grant of Letters of Administration.

Chances are you’ll need help with your business. Here is a list of common legal services we provide.
Common business law and commercial law services
Every business, whether knowingly or unknowingly, deals in one or more areas of contract law. Common examples are employment contracts, leases, and contracts for the supply or sale of goods to customers and services to your business.
By failing to properly consider all the legal issues and ramifications which can arise from these contracts, you may be exposing yourself to expensive or stressful litigation from employees, suppliers, landlords, tenants or customers.
You should make an appointment with us to discuss the review of the contracts that form part of your business.
Contract law seeks to regulate the formation and enforcement of contracts. It sets out the essential elements of a valid contract and the remedies available to parties in the case of a breach of contract.
Business Regulations: This set of law covers government rules and regulations for business organisations, factories, trade unions, and labour.
This is where corporations get their power from. Corporate law deals with the formation, management, and termination of corporations. It sets out legal provisions for issues such as the election of directors, raising of capital, prevention of insider trading, distribution of dividends, the redemption of shares, and mergers and acquisitions.
This is an umbrella law that provides for patenting of inventions and copyrighting of creative work.
A commercial lawyer (or business lawyer) can be an immaculate tool with the smooth running of your business or company and making sure you are equipped and protected in the case of any legal issues you may face. We offer corporate legal services that are consistent, amiable, and reliable. We handle a wide range of commercial legal matters, from commercial property leases and litigation to employment law and ongoing business solutions.
