Estate Claims: A New Battleground
Published on 18 Mar 2015
| Took place at RACV Club, Melbourne, VIC
Controversial changes to the rules relating to who can make a claim against a deceased estate took effect from 1 January 2015. Adult children and other close family members may now find it more difficult to make claims. Some claimants (friendly neighbours, nieces & nephews) will no longer generally be eligible at all. Conversely, clients arguably now have greater freedom of testamentary disposition.
This event analysed these and other changes included in the new
legislation and what they mean to your clients.
