Do you need a Will?
Any person who has assets, including cash, investments, RRSPs, TFSA, jewelry, furniture fixture, including pets, needs a Will to properly administer the division of his/her property upon death.
If you die without a Will, or with an improper Will, your estate will be divided “intestate”, that is in a manner the government decides how your estate is to be divided on a formula by legislature control, and not in a manner you could control or wish for. In addition, your estate becomes subject to paying probate taxes.
Do you need a Power of Attorney?
A Power of Attorney will allow your chosen individual to act in a fiduciary fashion, in a manner only considering your best interests in relation to your care, which includes medical decisions, property, and finances. When you do not have a Power of Attorney, and you become incapable of managing your Personal Care and Property, you are required to get a guardianship Order, by a supervised court process, which is a complex and costly legal process.
