Intended as a practical guide for experienced lawyers, law clerks and paralegals engaged in the day-to-day administration of estates, as well as a handbook for students and practitioners new to the subject, Ontario Estate Administration, 9th Edition offers a comprehensive overview of a practice area that is becoming increasingly important and complex as the population ages and planning for mental incapacity becomes more and more critical.

An Indispensable Reference
Each chapter in Ontario Estate Administration, 9th Edition provides a summary of the law and practice in a specific area of estate administration – from court applications (both with and without a will), to estate conveyancing, to powers of attorney and guardianship. This publication also contains a full set of more than 80 updated forms and precedents for both contentious and non-contentious estate matters, as well as easy-to-follow guidance on how to complete those forms and precedents, including handy checklists to help avoid mistakes and errors.

In addition, this volume includes the forms, precedents and instructions needed for the preparation of powers of attorney and court applications for adult guardianship, as well as for the administration of the estates of incapable adults. Throughout, the text cross-references the forms for quick and efficient ease of use.
