Wills

Will Preparation with Uptown Notaries

Any person in BC who owns property including real estate, vehicles or other assets; has a dependent spouse or children, and wishes to have someone they know and trust take care of their estate after their death should have a will. A properly prepared Will ensures that your loved ones are taken care of.

At Uptown Notaries, we have many years of experience helping residents of Burnaby, Coquitlam and New Westminster draft or update their Wills.

Wills are a critical tool for outlining your wishes for the distribution of assets, guardianship of minor children, and the designation of an Executor who takes care of administering the estate. Without a Will, the Supreme Court will determine how your estate is administered under the Wills, Estates, and Succession Act rather than the choices you would have made.

A Will leaves important directions for the executor of your estate. It is important to assign an executor who has the organizational skills and time to execute your will.

A Will includes:
• How your estate should be handled and who the beneficiaries areNotary Public for Wills
• Who will be administering your Estate – Executor/Trustee
• Provisions for Guardian in case you have minor children.
• Trust provisions to care for minor children
• Donations to Charity, if desired
• Funeral or Burial Arrangements if you wish

When should you update your Will?

  • You should update your will whenever there is a significant change in your life situation. Consider the following questions:
  • Have your family circumstances changed?
  • Have you married or divorced since your Will was signed?
  • Has there been a death in your family?
  • Are you satisfied with your choice of Trustee and is your named Trustee still able to administer your estate well into the future?
  • Has there been any change in the value of your assets?
  • Have you made any substantial gifts or loans that should be recorded?
  • Have there been any recent changes to legislation that may provide you with tax and probate relief?

  • "Audrey and I wanted to send a note of thanks for your handling of our construction mortgage. I don’t know how many transactions this is, but you’ve been fabulous every time. It makes it so much easier when you can trust your notary to provide such great service. Thanks again. I’m sure we’ll be in touch in the future."

    Gregg Cockrill - Barrister & Solicitor

  • "I’ve worked with Rose Miller for many years I’m currently a mortgage broker owner and prior to that I was in real estate for 12 years . I’ve had my share of lawyers and notaries and I can tell you without a doubt that Rose and her team are sharp, competent and organized. I never feel like a client will be mistreated or that a file will get messed up. In this industry mistakes can be costly. Her team is very quick to communicate with me if there is anything out of the ordinary or if they have questions regarding the client. I have never had a bad situation with Rose’s office not even once. I would not hesitate to recommend Rose and I do so on a continual basis she’s perfectly lovely and her team works very hard to make sure her reputation stays intact."

    Heather Wood - Interest Advantage Mortgage

  • "Rose Miller is one of the most respected Notary Public’s in the real estate Industry. I have worked with her both professionally and personally for about 15 years. In that time, her and her team have always delivered exceptional service. I am happy to recommend her to anyone!"

    Janet Frost

  • "Since I bought my first apartment in 1994 Rose has been completing real estate deals for me. She is honest and has a great deal of integrity. Rose and her office staff are always professional and reliable. When I send a contract, I have the utmost confidence that my transaction is in good hands and will be executed with care and competence. Rose has the experience and skills to ensure that your conveyance will go smoothly, with a positive result. For over a decade now I have held real estate and mortgage licenses, which has increased the number of purchases, sales, financing or refinancing needs that I have personally, as well as for clients. I have no reservation in referring clients and friends to Rose for their real estate conveyance or notary public services. The feedback from those clients and friends is always positive. I have dealt with banks that indicated that they almost exclusively dealt with lawyers when lending mortgage funds and they rarely allowed notary publics to handle the conveyance. Rose was always on their list though. This is a testament to her good reputation and many years of solid performance."

    Don Danbrook, CPA, CGA

  • "I had a wonderful experience with Rose Miller and her team. Buying a first home can be a daunting experience, but I'm very pleased to say that working with Rose filled me with confidence during those crucial, final stages of my purchase. Her efficiency, quick response times, thorough explanations and helpfulness, coupled with the polite, well-mannered staff were an absolute treat, and I have highly recommend her services to my home-buying friends and family. Thank you, Rose and team, for your professionalism and care!"
