What is a Will?

A Will is the legal document that describes how you wish your assets to be distributed upon your death. A Will also allows you to choose an Executor who will be responsible for making sure your wishes are met.

More than 50% of adult Australians do not have a valid Will. The Public Trustee actively encourages every West Australian over the age of 18 to have a current and valid will.

The Public Trustee drafts Wills for people who are domiciled in Western Australia. To view our fees for drafting a Will, refer to Wills, WA Will Bank and Enduring Powers of Attorney brochure.

To draft your Will, we are required to meet with you personally when taking your instructions and signing your Will.

For new Will enquiries or to make an appointment phone 1300 746 116 or contact Public Trustee.

If you live outside a 50km radius of Perth, you are eligible to make a telephone Will appointment. You can contact us on 1300 746 116 or contact Public Trustee to book an appointment.
