Section 11 – Deceased Persons
Section 11 Introduction
When a loved one passes away, the family and legal representative have to ensure that legal formalities are complied with and deadlines met.
The deceased’s legal representative is the person named in the will or a person appointed by the heirs to handle the estate if there is no will or if a representative has not been named in the will (administrator). In Quebec, this person is called the liquidator of the estate.
