Understanding Inheritance & Succession Law

Inheritance and Succession Law, often referred to as estate planning or probate law, governs the distribution of assets, properties, and wealth upon an individual’s death. These laws are designed to ensure that the deceased’s wishes are honoured, debts are settled, and assets are transferred to the rightful heirs or beneficiaries.

Key Laws Applicable in Inheritance & Succession Law

In Pakistan, several key laws and regulations govern matters related to inheritance and succession. Some of the prominent laws include:

  • The Succession Act, 1925: This act provides the legal framework for the distribution of assets and properties when an individual passes away without a will (intestate succession).
  • The Muslim Personal Law (Shariat) Application Act, 1937: This act applies Islamic principles to matters of inheritance for Muslims in Pakistan.
  • The Hindu Succession Act, 1956: This act regulates the succession and inheritance rights of Hindus in Pakistan.
