What are the consequences of not having a Will? The job of sorting out your estate will fall on those closest to you, be it friends or relatives or other interested parties. The reason that a person may be required to sort out your affairs will be to take account of any funds in your bank account, or your entitlements to a pension, or the transfer of any land or personal property you own, the claiming of superannuation or shares or other funds held on your account and the payment of outstanding bills. The other job that has to be attended to is the arrangement of your funeral.
The tracking down of likely other interested parties who could be potential beneficiaries of the deceased’s estate can be very time consuming and difficult for the applicant. In this regard, you could definitely benefit from the services of an Inner West lawyer.
