You’re about to make some important decisions. Here’s the important information you’ll need:
- STEP 3 asks about ‘Executors’ – this is the part where you name the person who you want to manage your affairs. Have a bit of a think about who this person should be and make sure you have all their details.
- STEP 4 talks about ‘Assets & Liabilities’ – you’ll need to be able to list all your assets in this section. Have your insurance and superannuation paperwork handy for this section too.
- If the decision is clear in your mind as to who you’d like to leave your Estate to, and it falls into one of these 4 categories:
- All to my Partner / Wife / Husband
- All to my child
- Split among my children
You can fast track through Step 4 making the whole processes even faster.
- STEP 5 talks about ‘Guardians’ – this is the part where you name the person who you want to be the primary guardian of your children. Make sure you have all their details.
- STEP 6 talks about a ‘Carer’ – this where you name the person you would like to be the carer of your pet/s. Make sure you have all their details.
- STEP 7 talks about ‘Bequests ‘Gifts in Wills’ – this is where you nominate any friends, families or charities that you’d like to leave any gifts to. Make sure you have a list of gifts, a list of recipients and all of their details.
- STEP 8 is the all-important ‘Residual of Estate’ – this section asks you to nominate who you would like to leave your possessions to. Make sure you have all their details handy.
