Upon a client’s death, issues centred around wills and estate administration can deeply compound an already stressful situation for all involved.

Following on from a session at the Christchurch General Practitioner CPD Day in February this year, this webinar will help you make sense of the changing landscape in this complex area.

It will include consideration of:

  • Common pitfalls in practice in the drafting of wills, and administration of estates
  • Key case law developments, including the Courts’ interpretation and application of relevant legislation, including the Wills Act 2007 and Family Protection Act 1955
  • The interaction between trust law and the administration of estates.

Many people consider a will to be a simple document. Instructions for wills are routinely
passed on to graduate lawyers and legal executives to complete, and charged for
accordingly. Some law firms choose to prepare wills for clients free of charge. However,
there are an array of ways in which bad drafting, and lack of consideration as to the
consequences of the arrangements being documented, can cause complicated (and costly)
issues upon the death of the will maker.

In this context, will makers often have a family trust to consider, in addition to the assets
in their personal name. Careful attention needs to be paid to the nexus between the terms
of the trust deed and the terms of the will. In addition, the more general interplay with trust
law often informs how issues arising in estate administration may be resolved.
Likewise, the legislative and equitable foundations for claims against estates must be borne
in mind when preparing a will as they can have significant ramifications on the
administration of an estate.
