A will for couples is much, much more than the mere transfer of an inventory of assets. It is a legal document…. You can download a will for couples instantly here.

This will is made for use by married couples who want to leave their estate to each other. Suitable for couples who are married, defacto or planning to marry. You don’t always need your lawyer to write your will if it is a basic will — one that leaves a home, investments, and personal items to your loved ones.

Also known as a joint will, a will for couples is a single will that’s signed by two people, usually a married couple, leaving all their assets to each other. …

A will is a document containing a person’s instructions as to how their property is to be distributed after their death.  Failure to make a will results in the distribution of the assets of the deceased being determined by statute. The law relating to wills in New South Wales is covered by the Succession Act 2006.

However, the issues arising from including or excluding children from former relationships in clients wills are now commonplace. This demands an understanding of the options and pitfalls inherent in some apparent solutions as well as the provisions of the Succession Act 2006 relating to family provision claims.

Because legislation such as the Trustee Act 1925 provides executors with wide powers of investment those powers have been omitted from the wills precedents as entirely unnecessary.

With specific bequests take care to identify what is owned by testators such as interests in companies, trusts and partnerships.

Any expenses of looking after personalty the subject of specific bequests, such as warehousing and delivery costs are for the donee, not the estate. To avoid potential disagreement later and depending on the circumstances this should be clarified in the will.

In describing personal effects remember that it may be necessary to specifically include furniture and furnishings in sheds or detached flats and to include tools, plant and machinery such as ride-on mowers.

A release of debt is a legacy to the debtor. If releasing debt by will release the debtor and his estate, otherwise if the debtor dies before the testator the release fails and the debtor’s estate is liable for the debt.

It is important to be aware that if the will provides for a pecuniary legacy for the support of a beneficiary, the estate will be required to buy an annuity or set aside a fund sufficient for the income it earns to meet the liability. This can involve substantial capital cost to the estate as the court imposed terms are very conservative
