Having a current will is critical to protecting your family’s future. Despite this, more than 70% of Canadians do not have one. It may be unpleasant to think about, but if you do not have a will, there can be serious and expensive consequences.
Without a will, your wishes are not protected. A judge will also have to appoint an executor, which can take a long time; it could also end up being someone in your family that you do not want in charge of your affairs. Your estate will get distributed in accordance with the law, so you will not have a say in who will acquire your assets. In addition, your possessions can be sold for cash. Not having a will can also be costly, with increased legal fees, taxes, and administrative costs.
