A will is only part of an overall estate planning as there are opportunities to transfer certain assets to beneficiaries outside of a will, without tax and other cost consequences. It is very important to have and keep proper estate planning in order to:

- make sure your assets are transferred to your beneficiaries

- pay the least amount of taxes on your estate

- assign guardians for minor children (if any)

Colin Lyle knows about the rules that apply to wills and probate and can help with estate planning in order to save taxes and protect your beneficiaries. You'll have the peace of mind of knowing that your will is properly drafted and valid, and that your estate will be paid out according to your wishes and efficiently probated if need be.


The real estate transaction is complex and potentially intimidating especially for new home buyers since the price of a house is only part of the total cost of buying or selling. Purchasing, selling and refinancing of real estate can be complex. At Colin Lyle's Law firm we recognize the importance of being able to understand the associated fees and disbursements that affect the final cost of your transaction so you are able to budget your funds and minimize any disappointment and difficulties on the day of closing.
