You may think only the wealthy need an estate plan, but anyone—regardless of age, marital status, or total assets—benefits from having one in place.

Welcome to the Australian Property Investment Podcast. In each episode, we ask a guest expert to share their key insights for aspiring investors to make confident property choices.

In this week’s episode, Olivia Southall and Nicki McNamara of Kells Your Lawyers share their expertise in will and estate planning and why it is essential to create an advance directive or a living will.

They also discuss how having a clear estate plan may spare your assets and family’s well-being from a lot of concern and decision-making.
