THE NOTARY

and inheritance law

People do not like to think about their own death.  As a result, few have last wills and testaments.  That allows statutory inheritance rules to apply, which can lead to unpleasant surprises for the surviving spouse or significant other.  That person's security is at risk.  Peace within the family can also be endangered by missing or deficient arrangements.  The continuing existence of a business can also be endangered when the issue of passing it on to the next generation arises.

It is better to take control before the law does so.  It takes just a little courage to plan one's inheritance.  The notary is available to structure the last will and testament.  He or she lays out all relevant facts in a clear and concise manner, which allows the client to choose an arrangement that best fits his or her wishes. Even post mortem, the notary can assist the heirs in all aspects.  That includes obtaining inheritance and executorship certificates and assistance in resolving the estate.
