The Law and You – 22nd Nov 2022

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 22nd Nov 2022 here:

  • How can the terms of a Testamentary Trust be varied;
  • If superannuation is left to the legal personal representative (Executive) under a Will where Probate in New South Wales is required, then it is probably safer to include the death benefits in the Schedule of Assets to be attached in relation to the Probate Application;
  • Can beneficiaries demand that an Executor not administer an estate in favour of the beneficiaries carrying out this task in lieu;
  • A rural property in the middle of the Gold Coast of approximately four acres adjoins a council park and the owner of the adjoining property is mowing the park as well as putting water tanks and plants on the property.  Is it possible to claim adverse possession;
  • Brad called to say that following a call made to the program some months ago, he wanted to let us know that the advice he got from the Gold Coast Community Legal Centre and Advice Bureau was extremely helpful and he is very grateful for the referral;
  • How long should it normally take to finalise an estate in Queensland;
  • If you have a Power of Attorney in another country, what steps should you take to revoke that Power of Attorney and make a new Power of Attorney in Australia;
  • Discussion about whether it is a good idea to prepare a Power of Attorney yourself;
  • Lengthy explanation of the difference between owning a property as joint tenants and tenants in common when one of the owners dies.
