I did a poll a few weeks ago and I’m now on a mission to make sure everyone has a Will.

So what’s the hold up?
Is it too confusing, too hard, too expensive?

I’m emailing out an info sheet to those interested in getting their affairs in order. If that’s you send me through your email address and I’ll add you to the list.

A successful night presenting at a seminar about property investment. Was a great ‘one stop shop’ for information on accounting, property management, lending and law and how it relates to investment property. We had some great feedback. If you would like more information about what was covered let me know.

Does the new euthanasia law mean your attorney can decide to end your life?

Does the new Euthanasia law that’s coming mean your attorney can decide to end your life?

Appointing someone as your attorney for your personal care and welfare is a big decision, but the onus on the person you appoint should not be overloooked. We checked with our resident expert about whether the new law that is coming will mean that onus just got even more serious!

Great tips for employees but also something to be mindful of as an employer. Be very aware of what you ask and why.

Top Tip Tuesday:
Can a potential employer ask you ANYTHING at a job interview?

No.
In New Zealand, there are questions which are illegal, as they are discriminatory.

These questions CAN'T be asked, when you are interviewing for a job:

🙅 Are you married?
🙅 Who do you vote for?
🙅 How old are you?
🙅 What’s your current employment status?
🙅 What religion are you?
🙅 Are you pregnant or planning on starting a family?

If an employer asks about your sexual orientation, gender identity, relationship status, religion, nationality, ethnic origin, political opinions, employment status, age or family status, then they might be discriminating against you. Questions around disabilities can be discriminatory if they don’t relate to your ability to do the job.

Consider the role - if the job requires heavy lifting or physical tasks, then your physical condition would be relevant. If you are wanting to work in a casino or bar, then your age could be relevant.

How to handle a question you think is illegal or discriminatory?
Be tactful but assertive, here's some answers you could use:
"I'd like to know more about how that is relevant to this role."
"I don't think this question relates to the role requirements; is there anything else you want to know?"

Here's a good NZ government resource to find out more: https://buff.ly/32L0QrA

Power of Attorney vs Enduring Power of Attorney

You asked, we have answered. I sat down with Margaret Mary De Goldi to answer your questions on powers of attorney. There is a lot of misinformation out there so hopefully the series of videos will help clarify things. If you do want to discuss whether getting an Enduring Power of Attorney is right for you just get in touch. Click on the link below for a full video of our discussion.

Do You Need Enduring Powers of Attorney? - Mortlock McCormack Law | Property and Commercial Law | Christchurch, New Zealand

Think your next-of-kin can look after things if you get hit by a Ford Ranger? Think again. Enduring powers of attorney work when you’re alive, before your will kicks in. Read the article attached and don’t be a Colin.

mortlock-mccormack.co.nz Do you want to be Adrienne or Colin? Scenario A – Adrienne Once upon a time, Adrienne visited Mortlock McCormack Law and took advice about Enduring Powers of Attorney. Adrienne knew a bit about them, but at her meeting with us she realised that getting to choose her own attorneys and ensuring that...

Mortlock McCormack Law

Our lawyers appeared in the High Court last week acting for an interested party supporting validation of an unsigned electronic will. These disputes can be costly for all involved and can significantly delay the administration of an estate.
Make sure you and your loved ones have a properly executed will and avoid the need to apply to the High Court to have a will validated.
If you, or a loved one, need to update or get a will, talk to us.

The Brainstorm Room

Have you got a Family Trust? Big changes are coming and the onus is on you to know what that means. Check out this video for a heads up.

Have a Family Trust? Then Brace Yourself.

People who think their family trust protected their most valuable assets, need to think again.

The new legislation creates additional liabilities and accountability for trustees!

As of 1st February next year, many things about family trusts will change.

If you have a family trust, you have a responsibility to be aware of the changes and will need to make some decisions about the future of your trust.

Register for this free webinar hosted by one of the most knowledgeable trust lawyers in New Zealand.

Andrew Logan, Senior Partner at Mortlock McCormack contributed to the new legislation so he knows what he’s talking about.

Andrew talks in plain English and will highlight the major changes and what to do next.

Here's why we need to urgently review the Building Act

Time for a revamp of the consenting process? It’s not easy as I’ve learnt myself. One of the many things people building need to consider. Getting your Building Contract checked before you commit to a project is a good idea to check all these things are covered and you know who is doing what and the costs.

stuff.co.nz OPINION: ​ Apparently you can build almost anything but in reality…. not so much.
