Drawing up a Will

While no one likes to consider the morbid topic of mortality, making a Will does not need to live in the too hard basket. Having an effective estate plan can bring a sense of purpose and peace of mind that the most important people in your life are taken care of when you are unable to take care of them.

Does a $30 Will Kit do the job? Like anything DIY—it doesn’t suit everyone, especially if you:

  • have children
  • have a mortgage
  • have a blended family
  • owe parents money (e.g. borrowed a deposit on your home)
  • own property or assets as tenants in common or in individual names
  • have a disabled family member
