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. 


  1. You are able to appoint an executor or executors of your own choosing who will then carry out your wishes after your death.
  2. 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.
  3. You may give specific bequests to a person or persons and you may also instruct to give cash legacies to named persons.
  4. You are able to dispose of your estate to family members in such proportions as you may consider appropriate.



Please request a wills questionnaire and we can discuss your proposed will with you.
