    Is it possible to remove a will held by the South Australian Public Trustee office and set up one elsewhere? We feel that a large percentage is taken on executing the will by the public trustee's office. Can a will be made that takes no fees on death?

    Once you make a new valid will the old will becomes invalid. Normally I would say that all you need to do is get a new will then advise the Public Trustee that a new will has been written and your association with them is done.
    I checked there web site and they don't mention this scenario?
    I would give them a call (08) 8226 9200 just encase they have some charge for making the original will when you break the contract.

    Let us know what you find.
