Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Inheritance Act?
The Inheritance Act allows certain categories of people to make a claim should the Will or Intestacy Provisions fail to leave them reasonable final provisions, the categories are: spouse, ex-spouse, child, step-child, someone who has cohabited with the deceased for a minimum of two years or someone who has been maintained by the deceased for a minimum of two years.
What happens if I don’t have a Will?
If you do not have a will, the Intestacy Provisions will govern who your estate passes to and who will be entitled to administer the estate, your property may end up in the hands of people who you would not wish to benefit.
Do I need a Will if I am Married?
Yes, many people assume that their spouse will inherit everything if they do not have a will. This is not always the case, especially where children are involved. If you have an existing will before you were married, this will have been revoked by marriage.
