Since the publication of the last version in 2012, the fourth edition of Probate and Administration Law in Singapore and Malaysia provides an update of the law on wills, probate practise, succession, and estate duties to the lawyer and informed layperson. Readers familiar with the author's earlier versions will appreciate the author's simple and clear writing style. This book is useful not just for lawyers, but also for financial planners, insurers, and accountants. The following are some of the topics that will be covered in the upcoming edition:

  • The passage of the Family Justice Act and the Family Justice Rules has resulted in a significant shift in probate procedure.
  • Decisions taken recently under the Mental Capacity Act.
  • The Court of Appeal took a strong stance against solicitors who create Wills and Deeds of Family Arrangement providing poor service.
  • The meaning and implications of Section 7 regulation 3 of the Intestate Succession Act are explained. There is some misunderstanding about what this rule means. A diagram in the next version would be beneficial.
  • Malaysian content has been updated to reflect recent changes and legal rulings.
