Wills

Your Will be Done

A Will is one of the most important documents a person can prepare during their lifetime.  The old adage of death and taxes being the only two inevitable events during one’s life has never been more correct.  A properly prepared Will which has been correctly executed is vital to ensure that your estate is distributed in the way you intend.  Failure to have a Will leaves a family with little alternative but to accept the order of distribution of assets as set out in the Succession Act 2006.  In some cases it can be the government who is the ultimate beneficiary.  At Grogan & Webb we raise the question of current Wills whenever we meet with new clients and are only too happy to discuss the preparation of Wills together with Powers of Attorney, Guardianship documentation and Advance Directives.
