What do I need to specify in my Will?

When you make out a Will you would normally include the following:

  • the name of your executor;
  • details of your assets including bank accounts, insurance policies, investments, real estate, businesses, family trusts;
  • clear instructions about how you want your assets to be divided;
  • full names and accurate current contact details of those to whom you wish to leave your assets and what should happen if someone you name dies before you;
  • instructions regarding your funeral arrangements; and
  • the name of a guardian to care for young children.
