Wills & Estates: Estate planning involves the transfer of someone's assets (e.g. property, money) when they die, as well as a variety of other personal matters. Wills, estates, trusts and power of attorney are all common tools used in estate planning. Will: A person's will is a written document that sets out the person's wishes about how his or her estate should be taken care of and distributed after death. It takes effect when the person dies.
Everyone should have a will. It is important that your lifelong hard earned savings and property (house, investments, and personal property) is distributed according to your wishes. You want to exercise that control on it even after your death. Give it to the ones that you love and feel responsible to and in the way that you want and let not the state (Succession Law Reform Act) decide for you. We deal in Estate matters while the family is going through the loss of a loved one.
Estate: An estate is the property that a person owns or has a legal interest in. The term is often used to describe the assets and liabilities left by a person after death
Trust: A trust is created to hold property or assets for the benefit of a particular person called the beneficiary. It is managed by a person called a trustee, who has an obligation to deal with the property for the beneficiary of the trust. There are many different kinds of trusts.
Powers of Attorney: A power of attorney is a legal document, often referred to as a "POA” that gives someone else the right to act on your behalf. Many people believe their families will be able to step in if something happens and they cannot make decisions for themselves. This isn't always true.
If you don't choose a Power of Attorney, the government may have to appoint someone to make certain decisions for you. It's better if you choose someone you feel you can really trust, who knows your wishes.
