WPC Lawyers specializes in Wills, Probate and Conveyancing. We also handle various other areas of law.
WILLS/DECEASED ESTATES/POWERS OF ATTORNEY:
We specialize in the drafting of Wills; from the standard individuals, husband and wife or partner Wills to the more complex of Wills.
Our experience allows us to draft Wills in a way that will ensure the smooth process of the administration of your Will when that time comes– we know how to best advise you so that your loved ones avoid any possible implications that can often arise as a result of a poorly drafted Will.
Obtaining a Grants of Representation is the legal process that often follows when someone passes away. We specialize in obtaining grants from the Supreme Court, whether it be Letters of Administration (if there is no Will) or Probate (if there is a Will) so that the estate of the deceased can be administered and assets can be distributed as instructed in the Will.
This is an area of law where if the application to the court is done incorrectly, this can result In a “requisition” which is a rejection of the application from the court. Our years of experience have equipped us with the skills to obtain grants with ease and avoid unnecessary requisitions which can arise. WPC Lawyers understands that this is a sensitive area of law and we take away the stress of this process from our clients and allow them to grieve for the loss of their loved one as we handle the legal and often unpleasant side of probate.
Conveyancing is the legal process/formalization of buying or selling a home. We prepare Vendor’s Statements/Section 32s to enable your selling agent to sell your home. Once your agent finds you a purchaser, we take care of the entire process for you from there, all the way to settlement.
When you are purchasing a property, we will review your contract prior to signing so you know exactly what you are in for. We will let you know the details of your property (e.g. are there any easements, covenants, overlays, levies or is the property in a bushfire zone area?) We will then guide you through the purchase process, advise you on stamp duty, grants and any other government charges, liaise with your banker/broker if you are obtaining a loan and ensure that your settlement goes through with ease.
We also take care of transfers as a result of a breakdown of a relationship or if the transfer is simple a change of ownership between husband and wife/domestic partners.
