 Recorded Webinar: The Right to Know: Disclosure Obligations in Wills and Estate Matters

Date: Monday 21st February 2022
Duration: 1 Hour 


They say that knowledge is power, and that maxim certainly applies in the context of succession law. However, when can information be shared, and when is it inappropriate? Through the use of practical case studies, this session examines disclosure obligations and the interplay with professional and fiduciary obligations. It covers:

  • Disclosure of documents and information in contested wills and estate matters
  • Power of executor to gain access to will files of practitioners
  • Who pays for the cost to copy files where they are requested?
  • Does an executor or trustee have a duty to maintain confidentiality?
  • Does the trustee have a duty to provide the trust deed and other information to potential beneficiaries?
  • Family provision claims and access to financial records
  • Confidentiality requirements with medical records
  • Confidentiality and disclosing information after death
  • Preliminary discovery application in wills and estate matters
  • Case update, including Jordon v Goldspring [2021] NSWSC 7
