What is a will – What is the role of the will? Following your death, the will, which is a written document, will be able to speak on your behalf. The word testament / will makes you immediately worried? On the one hand, it’s perfectly normal, we know that nobody wants to think about his disappearance. Here is the definition given by the Civil Code of Quebec, art. 704: “The will is a unilateral, revocable juridical act, established in one of the forms provided for by law, by which the testator disposes, by liberality, of all or part of his property, to have effect only in his death. ” Pay close attention to this particular characteristic: one-sided. The joint will does not exist, and paragraph 2 of the same article expressly mentions it: “It can not be done jointly by two or more persons”. This provision ensures the testator absolute freedom to test and prevents the danger of a person to make a donation against his will; this rule sanctions the individual and personal character of the will; also, no one can abdicate his ability to test (article 706 CC.Q.)
It should be understood that the role of the notary is not only the writing of a will, because it is essential to appeal to him for many situations. On the other hand, being anticipatory or making sure that your future disappearance does not cause your descendants even more hassle than the inevitable pain is proof of maturity and generosity.

Death without a will
Upon the death of a person who had no will, his estate will be distributed according to the articles of the Civil Code of Quebec. So, it may happen the deceased’s assets will not be distributed as it would have wished.
In Quebec there are 3 types of wills: holographic will, will before witness, and notarial will.
Notaries are the professionals to turn to when making a will. Wills prepared by a notary are the best type of wills that exist in the province of Québec. The will prepared by a notary will ensure that minor children are protected and that the right persons are entrusted with their upbringing.
Your notary is the professional to help you prepare your will. He will help you make informed choices and will explain all legal and judicial implications. Your notary will answer all your questions and make sure to phrase your wishes clearly, to express everything you want to say about your heirs, the share of your inheritance, the tutor for any minor child, the transfer and management of your business, and more.
The Advantages of the Notarial Will
Unlike the holograph will and the will made in presence of witness, notarial will takes effect at the time of the testator’s death. A notarial will is a precious document both for you and your heirs. Your notarial will is always protected. It cannot be destroyed, altered or modified. The notarial will does not need to be subject to a verification procedure by a notary or by the Superior Court of Quebec, verification process which involves expenses and delays. Moreover, the will made before a notary being registered in the Register of wills of the Chamber of notaries in Quebec, it will allow easy identification and rapid implementation if necessary. If, on the contrary, your will has not been prepared by a notary, it will have to be probated by a notary or by the Court. This requirement will incur some delays for the settlement of the estate and some costs higher than the ones incurred for the preparation of a will by your notary. The risk of distraction, degradation, or loss of the notarial will is thus eliminated. And if you do not have any will, then the law will determine your heirs and the share of your inheritance for each one.
The notarial will therefore provide faster and cheaper process of settlement of the estate. The notary will explain the precise definition and scope of the legal terms used in a will, such as those are concerned to particular legacy, residuary universal legacy and the nomination process of a liquidator and replacement liquidator.
