Wills & Trusts
Luscombe Legal’s commercial and property sector can help you with the following:
There are many benefits to establishing a Trust. These include asset protection, protection from creditors and protection from relationship property claims.
We can discuss the benefits of creating a Trust for your individual circumstances and assist with creating a Trust, drafting a Trust deed, transferring property to the Trust and general administration of Trusts.
It is important for you to have a Will. We are able to guide you through the making of your Will and help you to understand your options for providing for family and other interests. We can assist in ensuring personal items go to particular people after your death, advise on the effect of a marriage or de facto relationship on your Will, advise on providing arrangements for children, and helping to avoid potential claims against your estate.
We provide practical advice about estate planning, trust management and administration of deceased estates. We can advise executors and trustees of a Will and assist them with applying to the High Court for Probate if there is a Will or Letters of Administration in the absence of a Will.
Powers of attorney
An Enduring Power of Attorney allows you to appoint someone to manage your affairs if you are unable to do so yourself. There are two types of enduring power of attorney:
– Property attorney; and
– Personal care and welfare attorney.
We can discuss powers of attorney with you and explain the obligations and rights that they create.
