If a person dies, and property is passed on to someone after death. What happens? Part 1.
Now, you might take this a “Love & Affection” or “Gift”!
Oh, Stop! It is not so straight forward that it is a Gift by Love and Affection!
Are we assuming there must be gift passed down to the descendants? Is there a will or there is no will to prove that?
