Webinar Construction and Rectification: Where Are We Now? Webinar (On-Demand)


There have been a number of cases on the subject of construction and rectification of wills and trust instruments in recent years. Although drafting problems can be, and often are, resolved by a process of construction and/or rectification, there are important limits on the court’s jurisdiction and various practical considerations to be borne in mind when dealing with a claim for construction and/or rectification. Our expert, Edward Hewitt, who was counsel in Reading v Reading (2015), Jump v Lister (2016) and Public Trustee v Harrison (2018), discusses some of the recent decisions in the area and what they mean in practice.

Points covered include:

  • The court’s approach to construction and rectification after Marley v Rawlings
  • Construing a will or trust instrument vs. construing a contract
  • What is (and is not) a ‘clerical error’?
  • Beware the (mis)use of precedents
  • Costs and the interaction with professional negligence proceedings
