Make your documents valid
Make your will valid
For your will to be legally valid, it must be printed and physically signed in front of two witnesses. You don't need a lawyer or JP to witness your will, but your two witnesses must be people who don't benefit from the will.
Certify your EPA
Your enduring power of attorney must be certified to be valid. An authorised officer of a trustee organisation (such as Public Trust) or a lawyer or duly qualified legal executive must “certify” you are mentally capable and understand what you are authorising. You must sign in front of this witness. This service is included in your Public Trust EPA.
Online wills start from just $69, and enduring powers of attorney cost $129 each* (or $229 for you and your partner when you get a mirror EPA). Consider adding a statement of wishes for just $39. All prices include GST.
