The Law and You – 1st September 2020

Each week John Fradgley of Bell Legal Group presents a radio phone-in show on Gold Coast’s Community Radio Station 4CRB called ‘The Law and You’ where listeners call in and ask John their questions about a wide range of legal issues.

You can listen to the show from 1st September 2020 here:

Topics discussed in this episode include:

  • Potential difficulties when you make a Power of Attorney appointing persons who reside overseas and the pros and cons of appointing attorneys in Australia;
  • If you are elderly and residing in your own home can health authorities force you to leave your home and go into care;
  • Can a foster carer leave a bequest to a child in their care;
  • Dangers of appointed attorneys making gifts to themselves where the Power of Attorney does not contain a conflict clause;
  • How long does it normally take for a Will to be administered and in particular how long before a distribution can be made;
  • What is the maximum time that it will take to administer an Estate;
  • What do you do when you have problems with a tradesman who comes to repair your fridge and effectively does nothing but demands the call-out fee.
