My father-in-law was a state pensioner residing at MOTH Retirement Village. He had no assets at the time of his death apart from approx. R1 600.00 in a Nedbank account. He had a will drawn up many years ago when he was much younger and owned property. My mother-in-law was the beneficiary of his will. Unfortunately owing to many years of ill health he was forced to sell off all his assets. My mother-in-law is a state pensioner and she is still resident at the MOTH retirement village. Please advise me what is the legal requirements to settle this matter. Thank you very much.
