What can I bequeath?
A bequest to the Toowong Rowing Club can come in several forms:
A specific sum of money or nominated asset such as a house or other land, shares and other investments, life insurance, works of art or other valuables.
A bequest of your entire estate, or percentage of your entire estate (after all debts and expenses have been paid).
A residual bequest, or a specified share or percentage of your residuary estate, after all, debts and expenses have been paid, and other gifts distributed.
Your property (such as a house) can pass to Toowong Rowing Club after having been used or occupied by a primary beneficiary during their lifetime. Toowong Rowing Club would receive this only after a specified period or after the nominated person has passed.
