The loss of a loved one is a very troubling and destabilizing situation. It often occurs that these unhappy times uncover ancient grudges and difficulties that even the deceased could not have foreseen. Your notary can help you go through this difficult time and provide guidance throughout every step to make sure the requirements of the Civil Code of Quebec are respected while protecting yourself and the heirs from any legal consequences of any error or omission.
The liquidation of a succession is a complex exercise which raises many questions. Did the deceased leave a notarial will? If not, is there a holograh or witnessed will? How to proceed to probate the will? Who will have to pay for the funerals? Who is responsible for the debts of the deceased? Is the succession solvent? Should we proceed to a renunciation? What are the duties and obligations of the liquidator? What are the steps to be undertaken in fiscal matters? What are the following steps?
Our professionals can assist you through the various steps of the settlement of an estate, from the will search to the complete settlement of an estate.
