The Trustee and Guardian is a very important institution to preserve people’s rights in NSW and by all means, attend the free Wills days.  But consider very carefully whether you allow them to prepare your Will.  It may save you $300.00 now but your children may well be shaking their heads and muttering under their breath after you’re gone when they realize their inheritance has been significantly reduced by the Trustee’s Commission.
