following documents for you:
Simple Deed: used to transfer land or
real property between family Members in a transaction where no money is exchanged.
Promissory Note: a simple agreement
between private parties where one person agrees to pay a sum of money to another in
exchange for a promise of repayment.
Power of Attorney for Property or
Personal Care: a Power of Attorney for property gives another person the authority to act
on your behalf with regard to property you own. A Power of Attorney for personal care
appoints someone to make medical decisions for you if you are unable to do so.
Living Wills: documents that clearly
state your wishes as to life-prolonging medical care. For example, you might want your
Living Will to provide for you to live on life-support systems, if there is no hope of
recovery, or your Living Will may indicate you want to be kept alive under any
circumstances. This benefit is not available in Nova Scotia; Nova Scotias provincial
law currently does not recognize living wills.
