Your Will sets out who your property will go to after you pass away.
If you don’t have a Will, then in some cases your property may go to the Government or the Public Trustee may administer your Estate.
Your Will takes effect after your death.
A Power of Attorney is a document whereby you appoint a person to do anything you could do in relation to any of your financial affairs, including land.
The benefit of a Power of Attorney being in place is that it provides security for your future and the future of your family to be able to make financial decisions on your behalf.
An Advance Care Directive allows you to authorise another person to make medical and lifestyle decisions (such as living in a nursing home) on your behalf if you become unable to make those decisions yourself.
An Advance Care Directive provides security for you in knowing you have a person appointed should a decision need to be made for you.
