Wills at Home.

It’s important to have a Will, but that shouldn’t mean you need to leave the house.

A Griffin Legal Lawyer can come to you, using social distancing, of course. Why? Because your health is important.

Where possible, all Griffin Legal meetings are held through videoconferencing and teleconference facilities. Even so, you may need us to attend your home to sign key legal documents, such as your Will or Enduring Power of Attorney. Griffin Legal can now attend your home with our Wills at Home. service, to empower you through the law. Keep in mind for your safety, we have a strict hygiene policy for home visits. 

Our competitive fixed fee pricing starts from $495 for a standard Will.

Our Hygiene Policy.

We keep you safe at your home by:

  • Washing our hands, and wearing gloves and/or a mask if required
  • Conducting in-person conversations in large rooms, or outdoors
  • Asking you to provide your own pen for signing documents
  • Wiping down any surface used
  • Avoiding physical contact with any persons, and maintaining strict social distancing in accordance with government guidelines
Our Griffin Legal Hygiene Policy is also available as a PDF.

What Do You Need?

A standard Will does not include establishment of a testamentary trust for any beneficiaries.  We recommend a Testamentary Trust Will where you have young beneficiaries or where one of your beneficiaries may struggle to look after their own finances.

A Testamentary Trust Will establishes a legal relationship whereby one person (a trustee) holds property for the benefit of another person (the beneficiary). Creating a testamentary trust through your Will provides additional protection for your assets and may have tax benefits.

You may also like to consider preparing an Enduring Power of Attorney document (EPA). This allows you to appoint an attorney to make decisions in regard to property, personal care, health care or medical matters on your behalf in the event you are unable to act for yourself.
