Nelson established Wockner Lawyers in 2004, having worked as a lawyer on the Gold Coast & Brisbane since 1992.
We help people buy and control residential & commercial property, and then pass it on to the next generation in a way that protects their legacy by helping their children minimise tax and protect these assets.
You may save significant money by buying property in the “right” name, and avoid giving your Lender control of all your properties. There is no one ideal strategy, and different structures may be needed for different properties or different objectives.
Your Will and estate planning arrangements must protect your family. Do your parents’ estate planning arrangements protect you and your family by minimising tax and protecting their assets.
There may be significant benefits to your family where your Will (and your parents Wills) contain Testamentary Trusts. You and your parents may also need an Enduring Power of Attorney or an Advance Health Directive. Without these documents in place, you may encounter substantial difficulties in managing their affairs.
Remember that what you think might be your asset may not be dealt with in your Will. Property owned as joint tenants will pass to the surviving owner/s and your Will does not apply. You also need to ensure that your family will receive the benefit of your Superannuation policies and any Family Trusts that you control.
