The law firm of Bell, Jacoe & Company was founded on the principal that people should be treated with respect and dignity. Based in Summerland, BC, we have been serving the South Okanagan since 1990 providing help with real estate, wills, powers of attorney, injury, divorce, general litigation, and commercial law. Over the next months, we will be covering a series of articles here on our blog page to answer some questions often asked by clients from general litigation and family law to real estate transactions.
What will be new in law for 2022? We expect to see changes in the Wills, Estates and Succession Act that allow clients to sign documents digitally, and we recommend a review of your will so you keep control your last wishes. The new year will see BC employees receiving five paid sick days, minimum wage increases, legislation to cool the real estate market, and a ban on single use plastics. We will also see new programs and initiatives to help with the damage caused by severe weather and climate change. 2022 will be an interesting year in our industry, and we will keep you up to date with trends and news.
