Public Trust Estate Administration

Ian from Tawa

HI all, just wanting to encourage anyone with a public trust will to contact them and get an estimate of what your estate is likely to cost to administer.

HI all, just wanting to encourage anyone with a public trust will to contact them and get an estimate of what your estate is likely to cost to administer.
I am a little outraged at an estimate of my mothers estate taking 8-12 months to administer with a cost at just under $11,000- .
Mum had cash in the bank and no other material assets having been in hospital level care for around 3 years.
The estate is split equally between 3 children with a token gift to 1 other estranged child which I believe was at their advice when the will was made.
I don't know what it would cost normally but it seems outrageous that cash only could incur that sort of cost.
I'd encourage people to enquire if that seems high, you do have a choice.
I know Mum would be very annoyed at this cost herself had she known.
Thanks, ian

Meet Button.

"Hey, I'm Button. I am a very handsome and lovable boy. I am a huge love bug and absolutely adore everyone that I meet. I would love to go to my new home where there is someone around for most parts of the day as I thrive on companionship and don't really like being by myself. I love playing with my toys and chasing them around my room. I would be okay going to a home with young children as they will be able to play with me, but they should know when to give me time and space to myself when I need it, and of course to be respectful of me. I would also be okay going to a home with another cat as I also really love feline companionship just as much as my humans. I would also be okay going to a home that has a calm and cat friendly dog. I do have a medical waiver that my new family will need to be made aware of but we can chat about this when you meet me."

Samaritans provide a crucial free mental health support line .

Usually, hundreds of volunteers would be getting ready to collect donations for us, and Wellingtonians would donate, helping to ensure the ongoing operation of our helpline. Unfortunately, Covid has forced them to abandon their Street Appeal for the second year in a row.

Please consider donating to support your local community .
