    SA Rights to Property When Partner Died Without a Will?

    History to Date I’m not sure where to start but I guess the beginning would be the best place. Firstly, I guess I’m looking for advice on several different things. 1. The estate of my late fiancé. 2. The family partnership between C and myself. (C and F Degenhardt) 3...
