Product Description

An update of the law on wills, probate practice, succession and estate duty in concise and clear style of writing. The fourth edition of Probate and Administration Law in Singapore and Malaysia brings to the lawyer and informed layperson, an update of the law on wills, probate practice, succession and estate duty, since the publication of the previous edition in 2012. The readers of the author’s previous editions would be pleased at the retention of his concise and clear style of writing. This book is not only relevant to the legal practitioner, but also to financial planners, insurers and accountants. Some matters that will be covered in the new edition: 1. The enactment of the Family Justice Act and the passing of the Family Justice Rules which have brought about a major change in probate practice; 2. The recent decisions made under the Mental Capacity Act; 3. A drastic view taken by the Court of Appeal on inadequate service provided by solicitors drafting Wills and Deeds of Family Arrangement; 4. An explanation on the meaning and effect of Section 7 rule 3 of the Intestate Succession Act. There is some miscomprehension of the meaning of this rule. An illustration in the next edition would be of some help. 5. Changes to the Malaysian content to deal with changes and legal decisions in the last 4 years.
