Wills and Estates

A will is a written document which sets out how you wish to distribute your personal effects and assets (‘your estate’) after you die.  Your estate includes any property, real or personal together with cash, savings and investments that you own at the time of death.

Time and time again at Herman Bersee we deal with estate disputes which could have been avoided had the deceased made a valid, clear and concise will prior to their death.  This can cause a lot of stress and heartache for loved ones, who should be grieving.  We therefore take the time to understand what it is you want to achieve when distributing your assets, and explain to you the options and ways in which this can best be achieved.  There is no arrangement which is too complex.

We recognise that families are dynamic and unique, and that you want a will which is tailored to you and your family which may include second marriages, step-children, former spouses or members with a disability or vulnerability that needs to be catered for.
