09 Oct The difference between a Will and an EPA and why you need BOTH
It’s easy to confuse Wills and Enduring Powers of Attorney, but the difference between them is really important.
A Will comes into effect when you pass away, protecting your family by giving your estate away the way you want.
We believe the best Wills are simple and straightforward.
What a Will does
Your Will appoints your Executor (the person you trust to represent your estate) and sets out exactly what you’d like to happen to your estate when you die. For most people, that means leaving their estate to their spouse and then to their children.
We know your time is precious so we offer a fast and efficient service to have your Will signed up before you know it.
What a Power of Attorney does
While your Will kicks in when you pass away, an EPA (Enduring Power of Attorney) helps you and your family, while you’re alive.
It gives you the power to appoint someone you trust to sign legal documents and make decisions on your behalf.
They’re especially helpful when you can’t sign documents because you’re away overseas, or in the case that something has happened and you can no longer make decisions for yourself lotteries in nigeria.
The important thing to remember is – the EPA has to be signed by you, before these events occur.
Because we believe these documents are so important, we make it super easy for our clients to get them in place.
Our simple Wills start at $350.00 plus GST.
And we charge $175.00 plus GST for an Enduring Power of Attorney.
