Getting your affairs in order gives you certainty. Making your Will saves your family and loved ones from inconvenience and expense at a time when they are most vulnerable.
We found Jessica Smith and Co during our correspondence and interview very helpful, professional and understanding.
The preparation of the will was a smooth process. Jess Smith was polite and efficient.
Very polite, efficient, and helpful. Without any fuss or stress so pleased with them rates were also great.
Appointment for my will was on time, and Jennifer was very helpful and made things very easy.
Jessica was very professional & helpful with her advice.
Jennifer was very helpful and simplified the will process for me. Got rid of all the “fluff” (great term). Good to be able to finalise in one transaction as well. Would happily recommend to anyone wanting will assistance.
I was very happy with Jessica’s calm and professional manner. My request was processed promptly and efficiently. At this stage I would be happy to refer anyone I know to your company.
Both [client] and I enjoyed the process and felt Jennifer did a wonderful job. Thank you for your patience. It was a relief to have everything explained so well and for your comprehensive knowledge. The process was so efficient and professional
It was lovely speaking with Jessica. It made me feel comfortable and confident in being there, not only by her genuine friendly manner, but also (of course) imparting her knowledge and advice on the matter at hand. Very professional and adept.
Great service, thank you.
Great Service. Great People. Value for money. Very professional & compassionate. Thanks Jessica Smith & team.
Jessica was great and made the process smooth and simple. Greatly appreciated.
Don’t put it off any longer.
It may sound like a silly question. We all know a Will when we see one. They’re usually of fairly standard appearance – headed Last Will and Testament and signed by the will-maker and two witnesses. But all may not be as it seems. A case in point is the home-made Will of Kylie Smith (not her real name), that reads as follows: LAST WILL OF KYLIE SMITH I GIVE MY SON MICHAEL SMITH THE POWER TO DISPOSE OF MY POSSESSIONS PRIOR TO MY DEATH. [SIGNED BY K SMITH IN THE PRESENCE OF TWO WITNESSES] An essential requirement for a Will is that it be testamentary – meaning that it takes effect on the death of the will-maker and not until death. Kylie Smith’s “Will” took effect at the time she signed it (prior to her death) and not on her death. It is therefore not testamentary and not a valid Will. It is necessary to look beyond the heading and the signatures to determine whether a document is in fact a Will.
We have introduced measures to ensure the safety of our team, clients and the community. All of our usual services will continue, with modified delivery in some situations.
Under the terms of the simple Will your executor takes charge of the assets of your estate, pays your creditors and forthwith divides the net estate among your beneficiaries in accordance with the terms of your Will.
