Areas of Practice

Wills and Succession
A will is the legal instrument that permits a person, the testator, to make decisions on how his estate will be managed and distributed after his death. Succession is the inheritance of a dead person's estate when the property is not given by the terms of a will. Both wills and successions are regulated by the Wills and Succession Law, Cap. 195 and by the Administration of Estates Cap. 189. Wills may be said that is not used often but succession is an area of law that finds application frequently due to the deaths that occur every day. Of course both areas of law are important because without their existence the property of a deceased would not pass in the hands of his/her successors.
