Wills

In most consultations that we have, when we get to the point where we ask about a signed updated will the responses will be:

Always wanted to do that, just never did.

We are always talking about it but have never done anything.

It is too uncomfortable to talk about.

An important note:  Your will from another country is not valid in NZ

This is really a very cost-effective way to ensure that your loved ones and business partners do not struggle to finalize the estate in the event of something happening. Our charges to initially set up a will are $ 75.00 + GST and not more than $150 + GST per family and for any changes thereafter $50.00 +GST.  If there is one thing that I can recommend that you need to do, it will be to get your will sorted.  Make the call or send the email now, you will not regret it.

If you don't have a will, your assets/estate will be distributed in accordance with a set formula under the Administrations Act.  Therefore what you intend may be not what the Act says, and people you would like to have left something may find themselves excluded.
