Estate planning for second or later spouses comes with significant challenges, particularly when one partner dies, leaving a spouse or family living in the most valuable asset of the deceased’s estate. This session examines how an estate plan can best manage potential conflict between adult children and surviving spouses regarding the family home, including:

  • Life interests in the family home:
    • when are they appropriate?
    • should any limitations or restrictions be placed on a life interest?
    • how can a life interest take ageing and health into account?
  • Characteristics of a right to reside
    • what conditions can be attached to a right to reside?
    • when does a right to reside end?
  • Who pays for maintenance of the property?
  • Navigating the tax consequences of life interests and rights to reside
  • What happens if the surviving spouse later goes into aged care?
    • can the property be used to fund aged care?
  • Case studies
