Heritage Law continues to assist clients with probates and estate administration matters during social distancing.
Despite the British Columbia Supreme Court suspending all regular operations on March 19, 2020 until further notice, the Probate Registry is still open for processing paper applications received by mail. As probate applications may be delayed due to limited staff at the Probate Registry, we can assist executors and administrators to expedite those the parts of the estate administration process within their control.
To proceed, executors and administrators can:
- Fill out this questionnaire to the best of their ability with the information they have on hand: https://www.bcheritagelaw.com/new-clients/estate-administration-file/
- Scan to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 778-786-0616 all applicable documents that are listed on the attached list. The original will and death certificate can be mailed to our office via registered mail or dropped off through our mail slot.
- Make a phone appointment by booking online here https://www.bcheritagelaw.com/book-an-appointment/ or by calling our office at 778-786-0615.
- For more information on the estate administration process, clients can refer to this online guide: https://wiki.heritagetrustcompany.ca/index.php?title=Executor_Guide_for_British_Columbia or the Heritage Trust Estate Administration Boot Camp book.
