Why a notarial will?
Unlike a holographic will and a will before witnesses, notarial will take effect upon the death of the testator (the person making the will) and does not need a verification procedure with a notary or the superior Court of Quebec, which incurs expenses. Moreover, a will made before a notary being registered with the Registre des dispositions testamentaires et des mandats du Québec(RDTMQ), will allow easy identification and rapid implementation if necessary. The risk of misplacing, degradation, or loss of a will is thus eliminated.
A notarial will therefore allows a quicker and more economical settlement to the estate. The notary will explain to you the practical definition and the scope of legal terms used in a will, especially when it comes to universal legacy, particular legacy, residuary universal legacy, and the appropriateness of appointing a liquidator and a substitute liquidator.
