Issues Related to Existing Wills

If you are named in a Will, either as a beneficiary or heir, a trustee, or an executor, you will need to know your rights and responsibilities. We can advise you of these rights and responsibilities under both common law and relevant legislation in British Columbia.

We are able to advise and represent you in matters related to existing Wills, including the following:

  • If a Will is written in a way that is unclear, ambiguous or contradictory and you need help interpreting the Will;
  • If there is no person who is able to administer the estate and you want to step in as the administrator;
  • If you are named as a beneficiary and a trustee, guardian or executor and you want to enforce your gift under the Will; and
  • If you are the spouse, common-law spouse, child or adopted child and you believe the Will is unfair or unreasonable and you want to challenge the Will.
