Ashilpa protects assets through wills

Wills and estate planning lawyer Ashilpa Khanna of Capon & Hubert Lawyers & Mediators.

WHEN it comes to wills and estates, people might own assets in a complicated arrangement, which is why it’s important to get advice, says Ashilpa Khanna, of Capon & Hubert Lawyers & Mediators.

Dedicated to making the legal process easier, Ashilpa, who is the wills and estate planning lawyer, says she can give thorough advice relating to estate assets and superannuation. 

“It’s important to get that advice because a will, for example, has to be tailored to each individual and some clients might own assets that may be in a complicated arrangement,” she says. 

“It’s best to go through the assets and then tailor a will according to that.”

But if they don’t, Ashilpa says their wishes won’t come into effect.

“When it’s a non-government entity, a super fund is not part of their estate, under the will, and a lot of people don’t realise that,” she says.

“I go through the assets and super to see if they’d like to sign a binding debt nomination form, which ensures your super forms part of your estate, therefore is governed by a will. 

“Similarly, with enduring power of attorney I advise my clients in relation to property matters.”
