ADVANTAGES OF HAVING A WILL in NZ
There are several advantages to making your own Will
In this article, Weston Ward & Lascelles discusses the reasons why you should have a Will in NZ.
- You are able to appoint an executor or executors of your own choosing who will then carry out your wishes after your death.
- You may nominate guardians for your infant children, direct if you wish to be buried or cremated and give instructions as to the disposal of your ashes.
- You may give specific bequests to a person or persons and you may also instruct to give cash legacies to named persons.
- You are able to dispose of your estate to family members in such proportions as you may consider appropriate.
If you do not make a Will then your estate is distributed as set out under the law and may then pass to family members whom you may not wish to inherit.
Please request a wills questionnaire and we can discuss your proposed will with you.
