Wills, Estates, Executors and Representation Agreements
Much confusion exists around the subjects of legal wills and estate law, yet these subjects are something all of us have to deal with at some time. What are the key issues you should consider when planning your Estate and making a will? What is the role of an executor? What is a Representation Agreement and how is it different from a Power of Attorney or are they the same thing? What is “probate”?
Wills & Estate Planning
Most people do not like to think about their eventually passing, but in terms of protecting our loved ones and family, planning your estate and leaving a well-thought-out, valid will is probably one of the most important things you can do.

An associated topic is your Representation Agreement which gives a representative you select the legal power to carry out your wishes while you are incapacitated and unable to make such decisions your self. It replaces what was formerly known as an Enduring Power of Attorney.
