So got a simple question, however, doing some searches, my google-foo failed me. Hoping some here can help shed some light on this and point me in the right direction.
This is all future planning only, so no pending legal issues or such :)
My wife and I are Canadian, living in Toronto area. We have a house in both our names. She has a son from previous marriage. If she dies first, we'd like to put something in her will so that her son inherits her half of the house title. So essentially it would be in mine and her son's name.
Obviously the idea being to ensure he is legally entitled to half of the assets if she passes first.
In canadian law, can the will do this ? Is there other little caveats that need to be watched out for ?
Does anyone know of any links I could get some more reading on regarding this?
 clarification: step-son is currently over 18 [/edit]
