Estate planning is vitally important. All too often people are passing away intestate (without a will). Others suffer an unforeseen accident, and they are unable to manage their own financial affairs without an enduring power of attorney and notice of enduring guardianship. Many people fail to recognise the ramifications of not having a will and the impact it has on their loved ones. Young couples often marry, start a family, and before they know it, they have established a valuable estate and businesses without having considered a succession plan through estate planning.
