Intestate Succession Act

The Intestate Succession Act was first passed in 1967, and later revised in 1971, 1987, and 2013 to stay relevant in the fast-changing society.

It is the law in Singapore regarding the distribution of intestate estates.

It states very clearly the rules and provisions of how the estate of a person who has demised should be distributed among family members in the absence of a legally enforceable will.

Some of the common people who would inherit a person’s estate, which include personal property and real property include surviving spouse, children, siblings, etc.

It is important to note that different legal terms can technically be used to differentiate the different receivers and how they receive them.

The act does not apply to the estate of any Muslim. That would be subject to Muslim law.

Do consult a lawyer if in doubt.
