Wills & POAs

Last Wills & Testaments

We can witness and notarize Wills online and through our mobile notary service.

A Will is a document in which an individual, known as the Testator, expresses their wishes regarding the distribution of their property after their passing.

At Magana Notary we take account the legal customs and procedures of the province of Ontario. It is important to recognize that the structures of wills, witnessing requirements, notarization protocols, and legal consequences can differ significantly between countries, and even between provinces.

It remains the responsibility of the client to ascertain the appropriate procedures for drafting, executing and notarizing a will. If there is any uncertainty, it is advisable to seek guidance from a qualified lawyer. 

Wills require the presence of two witnesses. The Notary will act as the first Witness, and you have the option of either provide a second Witness or we can arrange one for you (additional fees may apply). 

Our services encompass witnessing the signatures of both the Testator and the second Witness, providing one notarized affidavit of execution, and notarizing the will as an exhibit to the affidavit.

POAs

We can notarize POAs online and through our mobile notary service.

A Power of Attorney is a legal instrument that empowers an individual, known as the Donor or Grantor, to delegate authority over property or health matters to another person, known as the Donee, Agent, or Attorney. 

Through a power of attorney, the Donor can confer control over specific assets (such as a home, vehicle, boat, etc.) or over all of their property. Additionally, the Donor can outline instructions concerning health-related decisions in case they become incapacitated. 

In Ontario, it is customary to have separate powers of attorney for property and health matters. Some individuals opt to have a lawyer draft these documents, while others may choose to draft them themselves, especially if the arrangements are simple. 

Ontario POA forms are available for download and completion on the government’s website (https://www.publications.gov.on.ca/300975). However, it is advisable to consult with a lawyer if you have any inquiries, as they can provide guidance tailored to your objectives and the specifics of your situation.

Powers of Attorney require the presence of two witnesses. The Notary will act as the first Witness, and you have the option of either provide a second Witness or we can arrange one for you (additional fees may apply).
