More than half of Ontarians believe they don’t need a will. Are you also among them?

Without a Will, your country’s intestate laws will make all decisions about the distribution of your assets. You are only allowed to choose the following:

  • You Have No Control Over Who Will Be Your Beneficiaries
  • You Have No Control Over Who Will Handle Your Assets
  • You Can’t Plan Your Property to Save Money on Taxes
  • You Can’t select A Guardian For Your Children

What is a Will?

A Will is a legal document that allows you to choose who receives what part of your property and assets when you die. Given the seriousness of the pandemic, Taman Singh Law Firm understands that many people wish to secure their future by protecting their property and estates.

We’d like to introduce you to our Wills and Power of Attorney Department, which will provide you with peace of mind. You can keep control by planning way in advance. The lawyers at Taman Singh Law will assist you in preparing all documentation and legal work to guarantee that all of your finances, property, and real estate are protected and properly managed in the case of an unexpected life event.

Protecting your cash, property, and real estate is an important step towards securing your future against a variety of problems. You should appoint someone you trust as your Power of Attorney, such as a spouse or a family member. When signing this legal document, it is also important to understand the rules and regulations.

How are Wills and Power of Attorney different from each other?

A Will is a legal document that states your wishes and specifies how you want your assets divided after your death. Your Will names a person or individuals known as the executor or estate trustee who will handle your property in accordance with relevant regulations and might contains rules for your children or dependents, such as the appointment of guardians.

A Power of Attorney is a legal agreement in which you grant someone you trust, referred to as a “attorney” in the papers, the authority to make decisions for you if anything happens and you are no longer able to handle matters on your own. A Power of Attorney can handle your assets and finances, as well as your health care, housing, and other personal matters.

A Will and a Power of Attorney are both necessary components of a complete family plan. Working with Taman Singh Law’s experienced and talented lawyers is the first step towards safeguarding your legacy and achieving your property goals.

What is Last Will and Testament?

A last Will and Testament allows you to name successors and specify how you want your belongings to be divided after you die. A will also allows you to appoint a lawyer to be in charge of carrying out your wishes. It is essential to have a Will in order to make sure that your wishes are carried out. If you die without a Will, your property will be distributed among people according to a government-determined plan. This may not be in relation to your preferences and may raise the cost of managing your property.

A Will is necessary to ensure that your requests and wants about your property are carried out after your death. Also, if you die without a will and have minor children, a portion of your wealth may be left to them and kept in trust until they reach the age of majority. If you are married, this may cause issues for your partner. Having a Will ensures that your desires are carried out and that you protect your family and children.

1. Powers of Attorney
Powers of Attorney allow you to appoint a person or individuals to help you with medical, personal care, and financial decisions if you are alive but unable to make them for yourself. If you become physically or mentally disabled and are unable to make personal or financial decisions on your own, the attorney you have appointed can make these decisions for you. If you do not have a power of attorney, family members may be required to request to be your guardian, which is a time-consuming and costly process. In other cases, the public trustee and guardian of Ontario may be appointed to make those decisions on your behalf.

2. Power of Attorney for Personal Care
This document authorises someone or people to make medical or personal care choices for you if you are unable to do so.

3. Power of Attorney for Property
This contract allows a person or individuals to make financial and other choices on your behalf at any time after you sign it. The choice of your lawyer is critical because you must be able to trust them not to abuse misuse the power of attorney and to make the right decisions for you in your best interests.

What is a Power of Attorney?

Many Canadians are worried about how to handle their cash, property, and real estate as global uncertainty is increasing. As we become older, life might become more unexpected, such as a job or automobile accident or a sudden sickness that leaves you unable to manage your money. This is an excellent opportunity to appoint a Power of Attorney to manage your affairs.

A Power of Attorney is a legal document that you sign to allow one or more people to manage your funds, property, and real estate on your behalf. In most of Canada, the person you appoint (spouse, family member, close friend, etc.) is known as an attorney.

How many types of Attorneys are there?

There are generally three types of attorneys:

● GENERAL Power Of Attorney
It is a legal document that transfers control to your attorney over all or part of your funds, property, and real estate. It allows your attorney to handle your funds and property on your behalf while you are mentally incapable or unable to manage your business.

● FINANCIAL Power Of Attorney
You will select an attorney in advance to ensure that you name someone who will manage your funds properly. This is important if you have medical bills or long-term care needs. You must write this on paper while you are mentally capable.

● Healthcare Power Of Attorney
If you are unable to make health decisions for yourself, you will appoint someone else to do so on your behalf. This document, also known as a Living Will, is usually followed with your wishes for end-of-life care.

When to review and modify current property related papers:

  • You should review your estate planning documents on a regular basis to verify that they are still applicable to you. For example, if the health or well-being of your Administrator, Attorney, or any of your beneficiaries changes, you should consider updating your paperwork.
  • If your marital status has changed or if you have children, you should consider checking your documentation.
  • If your original property related documents cannot be found, have been damaged, or have been destroyed, it is important that you create duplicate papers as quickly as possible.
  • When your children reach the age of majority, you may want to update your paperwork to include them as Executors or Attorneys.

    FAQ'S

    There is never a condition in which a Will is not required. You should be aware of important need of having an up-to-date Will. If you die without a Will, the courts will decide how your property is distributed, which may not be in your loved ones’ best interests. It is irresponsible to die without a Will, and it puts a huge burden on your survivors. Do not delay it any longer.

    A joint Will is a single document signed by “co-testators” (typically couples) that is meant to reflect both parties’ wishes. This is often regarded as a bad idea, maybe worse than having no Will at all. In short, do not write a joint Will since there may be complications if either partner changes their mind or wants to revise the Will. There may also be problems if the partner tries to change the terms of a joint Will, since they may be bound by the original terms.

    Yes. A Power of Attorney (also known as a Power of Attorney for Finances) and a Living Will (also known as a Power of Attorney for Health Care) are important documents that should be written and maintained at the same time as your Will.

    Friends and colleagues might appear as witnesses if they are not named as beneficiaries in your Will.

    If you die without a legal Will, your property will be treated as a “inheritance,” which is a property without a Will. In these cases, the court must select a person or individuals to administer and distribute the estate in accordance with inheritance laws. The resulting distribution is frequently in conflict with your objectives or intentions, and might have unexpected consequences. This legal process is often more expensive than a simple Will written by a firm.

    We advise that you have your estate planning reviewed every five years by a lawyer from the lawyers at Taman Singh Law to verify that your choices are followed, that your estate plan properly meets your current needs, and that there have been no changes to your assets or the governing laws.

    Illness, marriage, forming a family, the birth of children, changes in financial circumstances, and separation/divorce are all life events that should lead you to revise your estate plan.
