Overview The first edition of Construction of Wills in Australia, by David Haines QC, was published in 2007. Since that time, there has been a steady stream of court applications across Australia involving the construction and rectification of wills. The published decisions clarify the application of the principles of construction, and the operation of the relevant statutory provisions. Richard Williams, in this second edition, builds on the original work by providing an analysis of recent cases, together with a commentary on the applicable statutory rules in each State and Territory. The text provides a guide to the manner in which rules of construction should be applied in Australia. It contains a detailed discussion of the nature of gifts, both land and personal property, gifts to donees including class gifts, together with various other aspects of the law of construction of wills.
