Trustee Services

Trustees are obligated to ensure the trust assets are protected, proper accounts are kept, and beneficiaries are looked after properly.

Power of Attorney

The purpose of establishing a Power of Attorney is to have a person authorized to manage your assets while you are alive. Munro & Crawford Trust & Estate Services provides oversight to help people to age gracefully at home. If a person becomes physically or mentally incapable of managing their assets we can act for them without the need for a Committee Order from the courts.

We can act as your Power of Attorney if you become incapable, or in the interests of minors, when suitable family members are not available.

Services For Estate Executors Or Administrators

People often appoint their spouse, child, sibling or close family member to be their Executor, trusting these individuals to act in their best interests and ensure that their wishes are carried out. An executor is responsible for settling an estate according to the deceased’s wishes. It is not an easy job – especially while grieving.

Munro & Crawford Trust & Estate Services can act as:

Sole Executor – Named alone in your will to act independently to carry out your wishes.

Co-Executor – Acting in concert with the person you feel has the insight and personal understanding of your situation.

Alternative Executor – Able to step in should your initial executor be unwilling or unable to fulfill his or her responsibilities.

What our clients say

[Munro & Crawford] honored my grieving process while at the same time taking care of matters and guiding me through the myriad things that needed doing. Over the last year and a half I have experienced a sense of easy access, guidance, cooperation and care, far different than what I might have expected from a legal process. Further, I felt trusted and this made it is easy to trust them; they understand, respond to, and live integrity … and I will highly recommend them should there be occasion. Pille Bunnell
My family has known, relied and trusted Mr. Peter Crawford’s law firm Munro & Crawford for our legal needs ranging from corporate, real estate and family law for over forty (40) years. The service provided has consistently been personable, practical and professional. More importantly, the performance has constantly been prompt, proficient and productive. I would highly recommend Mr. Crawford and his legal team to anyone who desire to obtain such quality service and results. Peter Tioco
My uncle, who lived in Vancouver, passed away in August 2012. I was the executor of his estate but I live in San Francisco. I needed someone who was local, knowledgeable, and trustworthy to help me and my family. Fortunately, we found our way to Munro and Crawford. They turned what could easily have been a very stressful situation into a manageable project … On multiple occasions they went beyond the call of duty to help my family through this difficult time. I have found their work to be the perfect combination of professional mixed in with a personal touch. Andy Chan (estate file)
Peter and Katarina have been working with me through trying times, helping me not only with their expertise and efficiency, but also with a warm, personal touch, which goes well beyond the call of duty. With their assistance, a complex and unfamiliar situation has become manageable. Pablo Restrepo
I have known Peter for many years and we have done a great deal of work together on clients who required complex [Canadian income tax structures] to achieve their goals, and others who needed our services to assist in divesting all or a part of their business, or to make an acquisition. Peter is able to adapt his skills to deal large multi-million dollar transactions as well as much smaller ones. George Battye, Chartered Accountant
[Munro & Crawford] have advised us on so many things over the years both large and small. No matter the size of the problem [Munro & Crawford] were always there with calm and sensible advice. Resolving all manner of things – both business and personal. Allen and Russet MacKay
