WILLS, ESTATES AND SUCCESSION ACT
In 2014 the WESA came into force. The act provides greater clarity for individuals who put their last wishes into writing. It also simplifies the process for those responsible for distributing an estate such as an executor, committee or lawyer. WESA maintains the rights for spouses and children to vary unfair Wills and:
- Clarifies the process of inheritance when a person dies without leaving a will;
- Makes the process easier for a person to transfer the title of their spousal home when their spouse dies;
- Clearly outlines the sequence in which to look for heirs to a person’s estate;
- Provides the courts with more latitude to ensure a deceased person’s last wishes will be respected;
- Clarifies obligations relating to property inheritance in the context of Nisga’a and Treaty First Nation lands; and
- Lowers the minimum age at which a person can make a will from 19 to 16 years old.
- contains a brand new onus clause for undue influence
- will take into account the impact of the new Family Law Act on spousal will variation claims
