Calgary Legal Wills Question - Tracking Down a Deceased Relative's Will

Description:

Question : Is it easy to track down a will of a deceased relative if I don’t know where it is located? Answer No. This can be quite difficult. If you know the deceased person used a particular lawyer for some purpose in the past, you should try to contact that lawyer. If you have trouble finding that lawyer, you should contact the Law Society of Alberta to see if that lawyer is still practicing. If this turns out to be a dead end, you should contact banks that the deceased relative had dealings with to see if one of these has a safety deposit box belonging to the deceased. Though it’s not a good idea to store your will at home, many people do this. Places to check are desk drawers and filing cabinets, a safe (if the deceased had one), and even storage containers within a freezer. I have learned that some people use freezers to store important documents, however, I don’t personally recommend this storage technique. – PowerPoint PPT presentation
