October 05, 2021 by Jen Schreurs


In the Province of BC, this week is dedicated to individuals and families making sure they have a Will. It is one of the most important documents; however, most people in the province don't have a Will.

Associate Jen Schreurs explains the cost of estate planning and specifically having a Will creating for your final wishes.

Transcript:

People often wonder how much it will cost them to get a Will done. 

Every family has a unique situation, and it can be difficult to provide a one-size-fits-all estate planning package. However, here at FH&P, we also understand the importance of having an estate plan in place and have done our best to provide a base rate for our clients to get their estate planning underway. 

A full estate plan includes three separate but distinct documents: a Will, a Power of Attorney for legal and financial things, and a Representation Agreement for healthcare. Our estate planning documents start at $600 per couple for simple Wills, $350 per couple for powers of attorney, and $600 per couple for representation agreements, not including taxes and disbursements. Disbursements are expenses we incur on your behalf, such as filing a Wills Notice with Vital Statistics, indicating you have executed a Will and where it is being stored.
