What happens if I do not make a will?

>Without a will, the legal procedures are more complicated and time-consuming and may cause additional expense, worry and hardship to your family and loved ones.

The law provides a formula which sets out who is entitled to the property of a deceased person who has not left a will. The formula may not distribute your assets according to your wishes.

If there is no will, the Government does not take a deceased person’s property. But, the court will distribute the assets at its discretion. The government only intercedes in cases where there are no family members or clear beneficiaries.
