Wills 遗 嘱

5 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT WILLS

1. A WILL GIVES CLARITY:

Making a Will means you are leaving clear instructions on how your assets are to be shared and distributed upon death.

2. A WILL IS A LEGAL DOCUMENT: please don’t do-it-yourself (DIY), it just isn’t worth the risk

The Will we prepare for you will do the job of distributing your assets AFTER death. You need not make your WILL very complicated
(However, should you have special requirements, our Lawyers will specially draft a one-of-a-kind unique Will for you)

3. A WILL GIVES YOU THE FINAL SAY:

If you do not have a Will, the State will decide the distribution of your assets according to the Law. You don’t get to decide, the Law decides for you.

4. A WILL GIVES CERTAINTY & AVOID DISPUTES

Making a Will is really the last and best gift you can give to your loved ones.

5. A WILL IS ESSENTIAL:

Most people want their last wishes to be followed and assets distributed according to their wishes, that’s why you need to make a Will.

Our Client's interests is very important:- The person making the Will must have the mental capacity to do so, if we have doubts on the person's mental capacity, we may advise that a doctor certify the person's mental capacity.
Mental Capacity Cases 心 智 能 力 法 令

Dementia, Alzheimer's, Coma, Mental illness, Stroke, Sickness, Accidents etc can take away a person's mental capacity to make decisions.

The Mental Capacity Act is the law to provide protection for persons lacking mental capacity.

We specialise in Mental Capacity issues.

We represented Singapore's 1st Mental Capacity case in Court.

Since then, we have a very successful record of helping clients in Mental Capacity cases in court.

1) MENTAL CAPACITY ORDER
When your loved ones lack the mental capacity or are not able to take care of their personal welfare, property or finances, we apply to the Court to appoint a “deputy” to look after the best interests of your loved ones.

2) WE SPECIALISE IN MENTAL CAPACITY CASES
When the Mental Capacity Law was passed, we represented Singapore’s 1st mental capacity case in Court.

We are the 1st Law Firm in Singapore to obtain such a Court Order. Since then, we have handled many, many such cases. So we have built up valuable experience in this area of Law.

3) WE KNOW WHAT TO DO, EVERY STEP OF THE PROCESS
We will advise and guide you on getting the job done, the right way.

Probate / Letters of Administration – 遗 嘱 验 证 /遗 产 管 理 委 任 状

WHEN THERE IS A DEATH….. YOU NEED TO KNOW THIS

We specialise in Probate/Letter of Administration and have handled hundreds of such cases for our clients.

When a loved one has passed away, leaving behind cash, shares, real estate, financial assets, and other assets (all these are called “the Deceased’s Estate”), the Deceased’s Estate needs to be dealt with and distributed under Singapore Law.

The Court will appoint a person to be the Executor or Administrator to administer the Deceased’s Estate.

If there is a Will, the Will will state the person(s) appointed as Executor(s) to administer the Deceased’s Estate according to the Will. (called “Probate”)

If there is no Will, the Court will appoint the Administrator(s) to administer the Deceased’s Estate according to Singapore Law. (called “Letter of Administration”)

  • 1. Find out whether there was a Will made by the Deceased, or no Will was made by the Deceased. If there is a Will, the Original Will is needed by the Court.
  • 2. Make out a list of assets left behind by the Deceased Assets include bank accounts, shares, real estate etc
  • 3. Ensure bank statements, share records, property title deeds, financial records and all supporting documents are kept in a safe place. You must not lose these valuable documents and information.

We will advise and explain to you how to piece together the Deceased’s Estate and Assets.
We handle hundreds of such cases.
Our many years of Legal Experience will put you in a stronger position to handle your loved one’s assets.

Lasting Power of Attorney – 持 久 授 权 书

THERE IS NO CURE FOR MENTAL PROBLEMS LIKE DEMENTIA, ALZHEIMER’S SENILE… BUT YOU CAN HELP YOURSELF BY SIGNING YOUR LASTING POWER OF ATTORNEY

The Lasting Power of Attorney (“LPA”) is a Legal document.

A practising Lawyer is a professional empowered to certify the LPA. It is compulsory for LPA to be signed & certified by a professional person.

You get to choose a trusted person to act for you in your personal welfare, healthcare decisions, property and financial decisions, in case you lose your mental capacity. Note : If you do not have a LPA and lose mental capacity, you & your loved ones are required to apply to Court and incur much higher legal costs.

1. WISE people plan in advance for a time if/when they lose mental capacity. They expect the best, but prepare for the worst. The LPA takes effect ONLY when a person lose mental capacity.

2. WISE people want to be in control and choose only persons they trust, persons who will act in their best interests.

3. WISE people know that accidents can happen anytime to anyone (resulting in loss of mental capacity) and mental decline occurs with aging.
Medical Statistics (2013): 28,000 Singaporeans aged 60 and above have dementia, and projected to hit 80,000 by 2030. At age 65 years, 1 in 20 may have dementia. At age 75 years, 1 in 10 may have dementia.

4. WISE people hate uncertainty, however they manage uncertainty as best they can.
Doing a LPA ensures you are planning for your health and physical needs, and you don’t suffer ill-treatment, neglect, pain and suffering, financial abuse.

5. WISE people know they need BOTH a WILL and a Lasting Power of Attorney (LPA).
The Really Smart people plan for the present, the future and when they are no longer around. Unlike a Will which comes into effect only AFTER a person dies, the LPA takes effect when a person is STILL ALIVE but have lost mental capacity.

It's really WISE to sign your Lasting Power of Attorney, when healthy.
