Weekly Thoughts 04 August 2017

I was invited to – and duly attended – breakfast this week with the partners who run the little business that I use to help wind up estates when I’m appointed executor. We talked about the use of Inter Vivos and Testamentary Trusts, the use of Usufructs, firearms in an estate, communications with the Master’s office, problems with one property being left to multiple heirs and keeping Wills as simple as possible, which they advocate and so do I. Then we moved on to other important matters such as sport and motorbikes. It is really good, and I am fortunate, to be able to have time like this alone with various associated professionals. I get real learning for free.
