Carrying Out Final Wishes

Have you chosen the right person as executor of your estate?

In order to have your wishes carried out regarding the administration of your estate, it's important to select the right executor to handle your affairs when you die. Making the wrong choice can delay the distribution of assets to your heirs, inspire contested will battles and potentially open the estate to tax liabilities.

The duties of an executor, Part III

Many executors don't need to apply for probate, depending upon the estate's assets, as some can pass on to the heirs directly. Properties owned as joint tenancies with other people don't have to be probated. All executors must do is file applications accompanied by the death certificates in the Land Title Office to register the properties in the surviving joint tenants' names.
