WOMAN ENDS UP WITH ONLY A PORTION OF HER HOUSE
Peter was married, but unfortunately got divorced. Out of this marriage, two children were born. Then Peter met Anne, fell in love and re-married. The two love birds married in community of property. Anne was the proud owner of a house that was fully paid for. They decided to renovate a little and make some alterations to their home. Anne took out a new bond on the house. Then suddenly Peter died, without a Will (intestate)!
The result: According to the Intestate Succession Act No 81 of 1987, Peter’s two children from his previous marriage inherited a portion of Anne’s property, for which she paid.
This is real life experiences that occur quite frequently.
The moral of the story: DO NOT DIE WITHOUT A VALID WILL!
