BC Probate & Estate Administration Practice Manual

DescriptionMore Detail

This book is essential for: a resource for junior lawyers and legal support staff and a reference for all other practitioners in this area of law.

Current to: April 14, 2010  

If you do any work in probate and estate administration, you know how big the room for error is. Since it was first published in 1979, the BC Probate and Estate Administration Practice Manual has been the resource the legal profession has turned to when handling probate and estate administration matters in British Columbia.

This two-volume practice-oriented guide covers all the basics, and takes you step by step through a probate and estate matter. The book is prepared by leading practitioners of the BC bar and reviewed by an expert editorial advisory board. Subscriptions include online access with search capability and links to the full text of case law and legislation, updates each spring, and forms and precedents on CD-ROM.

Highlights of the 2010 Update

  • the revisions in the 2010 Update are extensive, requiring a complete replacement of both volumes
  • the Supreme Court Civil Rules, B.C. Reg. 168/2009 replace the Supreme Court Rules, B.C. Reg. 221/90, on July 1, 2010; the 2010 Update discusses the new Rules throughout, with references to the former Rules where appropriate
  • most forms and precedents in volume 2 have been revised for the new Rules or other developments; and some forms are entirely new to reflect the new Rules
  • the Wills, Estates and Succession Act, S.B.C. 2009, c. 13 (the “WESA”) is expected to come into force in 2011, which will require significant changes to the Manual next year; several of the proposed changes to the law under the WESA are discussed in the 2010 Update, usually indicated with the tag [WESA alert]
