Who’s using Agreeable?

Neither my ex-partner nor I wanted to go through the process of paying lawyers to create an agreement when we had already decided how to split our assets. The Agreeable process was an easy way to do it ourselves, while still complying with the law and creating a binding agreement.

Cameron and Kate

The clear guide to the process, the flat fee and the fact that we could do the whole process from home convinced me to go ahead with arranging this RPA through your service. I would just like to say that I found the whole process – in particular the website, the form to create/send the draft agreement and the responsiveness to emails from yourself and your team - incredibly slick, efficient and a pleasure to “navigate”. I’m not usually one to give feedback, but I said to myself several times through the process that I must give you all some feedback as the experience was so good, and I would definitely recommend your service to others.

Juanita and Jodi were in a relationship that was getting serious. They met in 2016 and moved in together in 2017. They were thinking of getting married. Each of them wanted to keep their own assets and income that they were bringing to the relationship separate. They found Agreeable online and bought the relationship property agreement. They drafted it themselves (with help from the online document builder) and then used Agreeable to arrange for independent experts to give each of them advice. Once that had happened, each of them signed the agreement and the lawyers certified it. The agreement enabled them to be confident of how their assets will be dealt with in the event of them separating. All of that happened online and cost them about $1900 in total.

Wills

What is a will?

A will is a document that you can make to set out how you want your property to be dealt with upon your death and appoint an exexutor. An executor is the person responsible for seeing that your wishes are carried out after your death. You can also use your will to appoint an executor or decision-maker to settle your affairs after your death.

 

How do I make a valid will?

Under New Zealand law, a will must be in writing and it must be signed by the will-maker. The will-maker’s signature must be witnessed by two independent witnesses, who must also sign to confirm that they have witnessed the will-maker’s signature.

A will should also reflect your assets as defined in any relationship property agreement to avoid to avoid disputes about how your will interacts with any relationship property agreement.

 

Do I need a will?

A will is useful as a tool to set out how your assets will be distributed upon your death. By creating your own will, you can ensure that those who are dear to you are provided for and avoid the stress caused by intestacy, which is a long and complex process that must be completed where a person dies without a will.

 

What are the benefits of a will?

The main benefit of a will is certainty. By creating a will, a will-maker can clearly outline how their assets are to be distributed and to whom. A will can save the family of a will-maker the stress and effort that arises from the intestacy process.

Things to keep in mind when creating a will

  • Keep your will simple, if you can, but be precise about what assets you want to go to whom. If, for example, you want to give a painting to your friend, it would be a good idea to clearly identify the painting by including its title, artist, and/or location.
  • Your will can set out how you want your property, goods, and money to be distributed after you die. You cannot give directions for what will happen to assets that aren’t yours (for instance, assets held by your spouse or held in a trust).
  • You cannot use your will to direct who will have day to day care of your children in the event of your death. You can, however, appoint a testamentary guardian. Ultimately, it is for the Court to determine who has care of children after their parents die.
