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 are
• 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
