Wills and Deceased Estates
You have worked hard your entire life to gather the contents of your estate and you want to ensure that you leave your hard earned property, cash and other valuables to the people that you love so that they may continue to live lives that they deserve.
This is the ultimate reason that it is worth spending time to analyze how your estate is going to be distributed. Naturally, it does also occasionally occur that a person dies without a will and this means that the have died ‘intestate’. In Australia, there are various rules for the different states of Australia relating to intestacy, but they all mean that the control of the person who is leaving the estate is removed because their intention has no legal expression. Avoiding this type of situation is obviously desirable.
