Important information before starting
Some assets that you consider to be your own may not be owned by you and cannot pass under your will. You should take this into account when making your will.
Any assets that are owned by a trust or a company will not pass under your will.
Your superannuation is controlled by the trustee of the superfund trust and will pass according to the trust terms.
Any joint assets including joint bank accounts and any jointly owned property or shares will pass to the surviving joint owner. To be clear, no part of a joint asset will pass under your will regardless of what your will says.
If you have requirements relating to superannuation or joint assets then you should speak with a lawyer separately about these issues.
It is possible to end joint ownership and control what happens with any trust/company assets when you die, however you must do this while you are alive. We can help you with this planning. This however is not included as part of will preparation unless you ask us to do this as their are additional costs. We can provide a quote.
