LawPRO, the company that provides professional liability insurance to members of the Law Society of Upper Canada in Ontario has prepared a brief video you may find helpful about what happens when you die without a Will. To view it, please click the following link: Ever wonder what happens when you die without a Will?
In addition to the issues set out in the video, loved ones who survive you are left with a usually much more difficult burden to wind up your estate and often face delays in being able to access assets and to deal with debts of your estate if you did not leave a Will. Many people put off doing their Will. It seems like there will always be another day to do it and it can be hard to think about what would happen if you were gone. Please feel free to contact myself or my Legal Assistant, Danielle Morrow if would like my assistance with the preparation of your Will.
