This chapter draws on the preceding chapters and other material in order to develop a coherent account of the law of intestate succession and of how and why it has come to assume its present form. It begins with an account of the historical development of the basic patterns of the law of intestate succession. It then considers succession rights in the absence of a spouse; the meaning of ‘children’ in this context; the succession rights where a spouse survives; and the position of same-sex couples and cohabitants. It concludes with an account of adjustment for advances, and of customary law.

Keywords:   intestate succession, succession law, intestacy law, succession rights, spouse, children, same-sex couples, cohabitants, adjustment for advances, customary law
