My friend has a property, which has a will that states the heir of his property. He passed away recently. In the past he was married for ten years and had two daughters in that period. He then got a divorce and some years later was in a live in. The will states the woman he was in a live in with as the heir of the property. Do the daughters have any legal rights to this property?

  • If the proeprty is self acquired, then your friend would be entitled to bequeath his property through the Will. However, if the daughters are minor, then they can seek maintenance out of the estate left behind by your friend.
