planning your visit to the public notary
Before you visit the public notary, it’s a great idea to plan exactly what you think you might put into your Will, dividing up everything you own (your assets) from everything you owe (liabilities).
Below is our simple checklist of things to consider:
- Make a list of everything you own (your assets).
- Make a list of everything you owe (your liabilities).
- Make a list of everyone and any causes that you might want to benefit from your Will.
- Think about two people who you would like to act as executors of your Will. You could choose your public notary (firm) to do this and your public notary will be able to advise on the charges this will incur. You can also choose family members or friends. Think about two people who will witness your Will – you will need to ensure these people do not benefit from your Will in order to be able to witness it.
