We're not married. What happens to my partner's property if they die?
This question has an answer and 5 steps

1. Check if your partner had a will

To find a will, you can check:

  • your partner's personal paperwork
  • your partner's safety deposit box at a bank or similar business
  • with your partner's lawyer, if they had one

In Ontario, people sometimes leave their will with the local Court Registrar for safekeeping. You can find the contact information for Ontario courthouses.
