Do You Have a Will?
Take a few minutes out to sit down and think about the things that you have not got around to this year. It’s essential if you own property or a business, or are planning a trip, that you have a valid will. It might not seem very important, or maybe it’s something that you just don’t want to think about, however it is going to be important for your loved ones.
A well-written, up to date legal will, (and we’re not talking about one of those pre-printed simplistic ones or a freebie off the internet!), will protect your property and make things a lot easier for your loved ones to finalise everything. Don’t leave a mess behind for everyone else to deal with. Speak to us today about organising the paperwork that will address your specific situation, and set your mind at ease.

How do you know you’re dealing with a Solicitor and not a Fake?
In these days of internet fraud and email scams, just how do you check that the solicitor you are dealing with is the genuine article? Easy! All solicitors who accept payment for services must have a current Practicing Certificate and be listed with the state’s governing body, in NSW this is the Law Society of NSW, and you can look them up by name, law firm or by area on their website: https://www.lawsociety.com.au/for-the-public/find-a-lawyer
If they are not listed, they don’t have a Practising Certificate, meaning that they are not up to date with current practice and are not covered by insurance, so do yourself a favour and find someone who is! Then you will be covered by their Professional Indemnity Insurance and can be assured that they are up to date with the law.
