Last Will and Testament
To ensure that that your estate (property and possessions) is distributed among your loved ones and closest friends, you should prepare a will. A last will and testament allows you to select your heirs and more importantly, outline all of your last wishes and intentions.
This process, which includes several tasks required to successfully and properly settle one’s estate, can be very long and onerous on your loved ones and closest friends in the absence of mandating a notary to assist in your estate settlement.
Protection Mandate (Mandate in case of incapacity)
In the unfortunate event that you are deprived of the faculties required to make decisions regarding your finances and your person, you will require legal representation.
Homologation of Mandate
In the event you have a loved one who has become incapable and you are the named mandatary in their mandate.
Institution of protective supervision
In the event you have a loved one who has become incapable and they have not prepared a mandate in case of incapacity, the law will provide for the institution of protective supervision. Depending on the degree of incapacity, protective supervision may be in the form of curatorship, tutorship or advisorship.
Purchase and sale of a property
Purchasing and selling a home carries many important effects that can carry serious consequences if not completed and done properly. For these reasons, we strongly advise that you contact a notary when purchasing or selling a property.
