Endorsed by the Institute of Legacy Management, this is an essential handbook for organisations and individuals routinely involved in the collection of legacies. Designed as a beneficiaries' guide, it serves as a useful source of reference by providing a clear explanation of the law relating to the administration process, providing readers with sufficient depth of legal knowledge to appreciate and understand the process which may determine how much they will receive and when.
