(p.417) 7 SUCCESSION
English Private Law

Roger Kerridge

Oxford University Press

The law of succession is concerned with the transfer or devolution of property on death. It can be divided into two principal topics: the law of intestate succession and the law of wills. But there are other ways in which property which belongs to, or which may appear to belong to, an individual during his lifetime may pass on his death other than by his will or in accordance with the intestacy rules. This chapter discusses the law of intestacy, wills, construction, failure of gifts by will or of interests on intestacy, executors and administrators, and family provision.

Keywords:   transfer of property, intestate succession, intestacy, wills, gifts, family provision
