You have been asked to be an executor of a family members estate should they pass away. Seems easy enough and as they really don’t have much why have a lawyer do it. Well I did it once for my dad and quickly learned I had chewed off a real mouthful. I still had to hire a lawyer to help me walk through the process so I’m not sure how much we saved in the final analysis. That being said, Manulife has produced an Executor’s Checklist to help you through the process. It’s a thorough document and, along with a lawyer’s help, should make the process much easier.
