When an individual passes away, their remaining estate, which may include assets like property, different bank accounts or superannuation, must be divided amongst nominated beneficiaries.
If a legal Will has been made, the Executor or Executors of that Will have a duty to ensure that the pooled assets are distributed in accordance with the deceased person’s wishes. An Executor can vary from a solicitor to family members and loved ones.
At Laymens, we aim to minimise the stress that can occur when preparing a Will. Our lawyers will assist you with all the legal and practical matters of estate administration. This includes organising probate, fulfilling taxation obligations, communicating with banks and superannuation funds, as well as locating any of the deceased's beneficiaries.
