Making a will is something that most of us put off for as long as possible. However, having the help of a wills and estates lawyer in Newfoundland and Labrador can make it surprisingly easy for you. Usually a person’s will can be completed within a very short time, involving only one or two office visits, and it is surprisingly inexpensive.
If you do not make a will, the law will make one for you, and your property may not end up where you want it to go. If you do not make a will and appoint an executor to be in charge of your estate, your relatives may have to agree between them as to who should administer your estate, and those who live outside the province will not be eligible to act. In many cases, the law requires that bonds be posted before the administrator can be appointed, which can be avoided if you name an executor in your will. Your chosen executor, even if they live outside Newfoundland and Labrador, can still act; however, only those persons residing in Newfoundland and Labrador can be appointed to administer.
Give us a call to find out more about how quick and easy it is to make your will and get that chore that you have been putting off finally done.
