Section 117 – Succession Act 1965

The Law Reform Commission is asking for the Public’s input into Ireland’s succession law.  Section 117 of the Succession Act 1965 – asks whether a parent has made proper provisions for a child in a will.  At the moment, a child has no right to their parent’s estate –unless the parents die without making a will.  But other than that, there is NO automatic entitlement.

    In to-days SUNDAY INDO Business Section under Family Finance Louise McBride has an article GOLDEN YEARS ARE TARNISHED by Savage FAIR DEAL COSTS which has a strong connection to this .It should be of interest to all retired associations as the thoughts outlined in this article are similar to many of GSRMA MEMBERS looking after relatives of advanced years.
