If you are thinking of saving a few dollars and signing with any Australian state’s Public Trustee to make a will or an enduring power of attorney, Don’t!
I have never come across a person with a good word to say about any of these organisations and my own experience was horrific. My father lies helpless with dementia in a nursing home, while the Public Trustee does what it will with his money and assets in total disregard of his best interests or those of his children. We are not even allowed to know anything about his financial affairs.
At best these government instrumentralities are vicious money raisers for their owners, albeit extremely incompetent. At worst, …. well we simply don’t want to go there!
So avoid these government instrumentalities at all costs and find your own lawyer to make wills and enduring powers of attorney or else do it yourself with cheap legal forms.
Consider buying, very cheaply, my novel, Brownout -666, available as an eBook from Amazon and all major eBook retailers. Be warned. It contains a number of graphic sex scenes and some violence.
