A Guarantor is a fool with a pen

There are some legal niceties as to the respective liability and obligations between the partners and limitations on debts being incurred on the ordinary course of the partnership. However, the responsibility you can face on behalf of your partner can put all of your personal assets in jeopardy.

Got Super? Read this!

Many people do not know that super does not automatically form part of a person’s estate and subsequently, the distribution of the assets held by the fund is not governed by their will.

It is essential to plan for what happens to your superannuation death benefit and to ensure you have a binding death nomination in place with the trustee of your super fund. This will ensure that your assets are distributed in accordance with your wishes.

Your Will, Your Way.

Posted on

A view which most solicitors with experience in Will making share, is that no Will is better than a bad Will. We have all seen Wills made by people trying to save a dollar by getting a form from a newsagent or simply scribbling a few words on a piece of paper.
In the making of your Will, you have a unique opportunity to pour oil on troubled waters. By thoughtful distribution of items of family or emotional significance past grievances may be minimised, and perhaps such actions may even help to create an understanding that you were unable to achieve in your lifetime.
Seek professional advice to ensure that your Will actually reflects your wishes.
