Question posted in the Property Law category relating to Northern Cape
Hi there. I'm Carmen, living in a small town called Brandvlei in the Northern Cape. I need some advice on an inheritance matter. My great grandmother left me her house. So the issue is that she told this to the lawyer, she mentioned that all of her belongings in the house also gets passed on to me. The thing is the lawyer never went and drew up the papers, he promised he would and he didn't, so now my granny passed away and the house now does not belong to me, because she never signed the papers that he was suppose to draw up. I have lots of witnesses to whom my granny confided in by telling them if she had to pass on that her house and belongings gets passed down to me. I want to know what I can do to get the house in my name, and if I can't get it in my name, can I sue the laywer for not drawing up the papers, because he had years to do so.

I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment.
If there is no Will that your granny signed, then you have no claim in law. Sorry. It is really as straight forward and simple as that.
You also can't sue the lawyer, because you are not the client. Your granny was.
