Question posted in the Property Law category relating to Western Cape
I need legal advise please.
My father passed on and left a last will and testament which was signed in 2018. He left his House to me his only son and the remaining estate to be divided equaly amongst the siblings which is 4.
My mum passed on in 2008 and her name still reflects on the property with my Dad. He got married 5 months ago before he passed on and the new wife claims that the will means nothing as she married in community of property.
