Estate administration work is a central part of our practice. We help individuals, both locally and around the world, with an array of estate-related matters. Our support includes information and advice about wills and estates and help with securing a grant of probate or a grant of administration for use in British Columbia.

Similarly, we can address many questions and concerns that one may have as a beneficiary, child, or spouse of someone who has passed.

Even in situations where a grant of probate or administration is not required, we can provide valuable guidance and assistance with a number of matters that should be attended to, for example, transmitting the name of a deceased co-owner off of the title to a home and any other real property interests.
