Wills in New South Wales (NSW)
A will is a legal document that outlines an individual’s wishes regarding the distribution of their assets and property after their death. In NSW, the Succession Act 2006 governs the creation, validity, and interpretation of wills.
Key aspects of wills in NSW include:

  1. Testamentary capacity: The will-maker (testator) must have the mental capacity to understand the nature and consequences of making a will.
  2. Formal requirements: Wills must be in writing, signed by the testator, and witnessed by two independent witnesses who are present at the same time.
  3. Revocation and alteration: A will can be revoked or altered by the testator, provided they have the necessary testamentary capacity and follow the formal requirements.
  4. Beneficiaries: The testator can specify who will receive their assets, property, and possessions, and in what proportions.
  5. Executors: The testator appoints one or more executors to administer and distribute their estate according to the will’s instructions.
  6. Guardianship: The testator can nominate guardians for their minor children.
  7. Testamentary trusts: The testator can establish trusts within the will to manage assets for beneficiaries.
It’s crucial to have a professionally drafted will that accurately reflects the testator’s wishes and complies with NSW laws. Seeking legal advice from experienced professionals can ensure the will is valid and minimize the risk of disputes or challenges after the testator’s death.
