The situation would not change with the new law. The issue at hand is that no will was made.
So to make sure I understand: Under the revised law, if there is no will, there are no changes to statutory heirship. So siblings, and through them nieces, nephews (and their children, and their children's children and so on?) still inherit via the parents of the deceased.

It's only if there is a will that the parent's portion - and thus the chain inheriting from them - can be done away with.

Oder?

Re: Wills and Estate Planning

Another question:

In the case where there is no will, who acts as executor?

Who ensures that the legalities are indeed followed?

Re: Wills and Estate Planning

I found this article very informative in regards to the changes that go into effect on 1 January 2023. I've bookmarked it because an update to the will has been long overdue.
