Wills and Estates
If you own property of any kind (whether personal property or real estate), you need a will to set out your wishes with respect to how such property should be distributed upon death. A will is a key legal document ensuring your wishes are carried out. Without a will, your estate (upon death) may be in limbo until either the government or a person (not necessarily someone you would choose) is appointed as estate trustee to look after your assets. This may result in delays, further expenses and/or other complications. A Will can also set out your wishes for your children/dependants instead of leaving that decision solely to the court's discretion.
