Testament & Succession
Did you know that despite the presence of a clause "to the last survivor of property" in your marriage contract, you should make a will to bequeath your properties to specific individuals, to determine the share of each individual in your estate, to provide a tutor to your minor children and to appoint a liquidator? Especially for non-residents of the province of Quebec, know that the "Joint Tenancy" is not applicable on properties owned in the province of Quebec. The individual who co-own an immovable with you do not automatically receive his share upon your death. If you signed a will outside the province of Quebec, probate court proceedings can be expensive and will be required for your properties owned in the province of Quebec. Please contact your Notary!
