Nothing protects an estate like a properly written will—
it is the most vital document in your estate planning files.
When a properly written will is in place:
- What you own is distributed to who you want it distributed to
- What you own is distributed the way you want it distributed
- Taxes are minimized
- You decide who will take care of your minor children
- Conflict and estate challenges are minimized
- You decide who looks after your estate settlement
Over half of all Canadians do not have a dependable will (either they have not reviewed it in over ten years; they wrote it themselves from a store bought generic template; or they’ve allowed procrastination to win out and have no will at all).
When a properly written will is NOT in place:
- What you own may be distributed to who the laws of your province say it should be distributed to
- What you own may be distributed the way the laws of your province say it should be distributed
- Unnecessarily high taxes may be going to Ottawa rather than family
- The Province may decide who is best suited to look after your minor children
- The potential for conflict and estate challenges is increased
- The Province may decide who looks after your estate settlement
