Funera Insight: Crafting a Will That Truly Reflects You

Funera Insight: Crafting a Will That Truly Reflects You

Crafting your Will shouldn't feel like a legal maze. At Funera Sydney, we're all about simplifying life's complex tasks. Let's dive into a speedy guide on writing a Will that truly reflects you.

1. Reflect and Gather:

Take a moment to think about your wishes and gather what you need - blank paper, pens, and two adult witnesses.

2. Executors Matter:

Choose executors wisely; they're the ones steering your ship when you're gone. Pick reliable friends or family, over 18, with mad organizational skills.

3. Clearly Delineate Beneficiaries:

Spell out who gets what - your stuff, your money. Update this part when life throws you a curveball.

4. Be Loving with Bequests:

Leave specific things or money to specific people or organisations. Be crystal clear to avoid future family feuds.

5. Handle Residuary Estate:

Guide the leftovers. Nominate loved ones to avoid surprises, ensuring nothing slips through the cracks.

6. Store Securely:

Keep your Will safe, but let your executor and family know where to find it. Easy access is key during tough times.

7. Sign & Witness:

Make it official with two adult witnesses. Use the same coloured pen, and make sure they sign too.

8. Funeral Preferences:

Attach your funeral wishes. Consider prepaying through trusted providers like Funera Sydney for peace of mind.

9. Regular Reviews:

Life changes, so should your Will. Check in every few years, especially after major life events.

10. Joint Property Check:

Confirm property ownership to avoid surprises. "Tenants in common" vs "joint tenants" makes a big difference.

11. Consequences of No Will:

Don't leave it to chance. Without a Will, the law decides. Plan ahead to avoid complications and delays.

12. Avoid DIY Pitfalls:

DIY Wills can go wrong. Redo instead of correcting, consider financial obligations, and ensure no one gets left out.

13. Specialist Solicitor:

For complex situations, consult a pro. It's an investment in peace of mind.
