I want to set up a will and am in the process of finding out more about it.
What's your experience?
Is setting up a will with the NSW Trustee and Guardian a good way to do it? They will create and safe keep your will for free.
If it's not a good idea, does anyone have a solicitor to recommend in Sydney southern suburbs (I live at Wolli Creek).
Many thanks for your contribution people!

I don’t think it is a good idea to appoint a govt department to look after your affairs – it will be expensive too.
Do you have some family members who could act as your executor? You should use a few in case one or more predecease you – but you should update your will every year too. They also have to be willing and able to act.LinarMember@linarJoin Date: 2004Post Count: 567
The NSW Trustee will remove all estate decisions from your family and will charge a quite high percentage to administer.
Just get any local solicitor to draw up a will. Most solicitors do this. Just look in the Yellow Pages.
