What are the limits on inheritance when the deceased estate is located in NSW?

The vast majority of discussion that relates to disputed inheritance cases revolves around property, which nowadays typically changes hands by other ways not related to inheritance. These days the ‘family home’, which is often the family’s biggest asset, is held by partners or spouses as joint tenants. Therefore, if either dies, the house will automatically be transferred to the survivor.

In these types of cases the concept of inheritance doesn’t play a role in determining who receives the property.

Turnbull Hill Lawyers, and specifically Adrian Corbould and Mary Windeyer, have been named in the prestigious 2022 Doyles Guide. Both were also listed in the 2021, 2020, 2019 and 2018 guides.
