The harm caused by unqualified people

 
SHARE

I can do no better than quote Registrar Boyle from Re Maria Elizabeth Rudd; ex parte Prince [2015] WASC 107. It was an informal will case. The Registrar lamented: “The deceased either was offered, or sought, the assistance of an entirely unqualified person to prepare these three documents. That person would no doubt protest that she was just trying to help a friend. She was no help at all. A claim of good intentions is no defence. The fact is that unqualified people who intermeddle in the preparation of documents that have legal operation cause great harm. The defence for such officiousness is often one of trying to save the will maker money. That is sterile. This deceased could have had several wills professionally prepared for a fraction of the cost that has been imposed on her estate by this application”.
