If you are in a situation where you need to contest a will, then it is best that you get the best advice available. Every year in Australia, wills are contested due to a number of reasons and although it is not something that anyone wants to go through, sometimes it is necessary due to the unfairness of it all. You need to have some kind of assurance that you are getting professional and independent advice from the right people and one way to go, is with the public trustee, who have solicitors, accountants and estate managers on their working staff and all are there to make sure that you get the right result. There are many advantages of appointing the public trustee in Australia and we will have a look at some of them here.
- Vast Experience – The Public Trustee in NSW has been involved in will contesting for over one hundred and fifty years in Australia and they bring massive amounts of experience to the table. There are over one hundred thousand wills held in their trust up until today and many more Australians are engaging their services because they know that they are going to get a great service at a reasonable cost.
- Efficient And Independent – Solicitors, accountants and estate managers have been working within the Public Trustee for many years now and they have processed so may wills that they are now very efficient in their work. They have streamlined the procedure and are aware of all the various issues that arise when doing such things. Their knowledge is their power in this aspect and because they are an independent body set up by our parliament in Australia, they are totally impartial and have no personal or financial interest in any of the estates that are administered.
- Accessible And Sympathetic – The Public Trustee staff is always on hand to give you advice regarding estate matters and issues and they will always give the best advice available to them. They also never make any decisions regarding the disposal of the estate without first consulting with all the beneficiaries, so that when a final decision is made regarding the break up of the assets, everyone involved should be happy or at least knowledgeable about what is going on.
- Extremely Reliable – Once you have decided to appoint the Public Trustee, then you can rest assured that they will do all that is asked for in the will itself. If you try to execute the will yourself, you may run into problems that will not allow you to execute the will properly and delays such as these will end up costing more money and will also involve delays in the execution of the will. Because of their impartiality, you can be sure that there will be no favourites and their processes will be objective and totally unbiased.
Public Trustess have all that experience at hand as well as all the necessary personnel to make sure that if there is a contesting of a will, that all the correct procedures will be followed to the letter of the law.
