Non-Contentious Probate Practice in Singapore 2nd Edition (2015) with CD-Rom  $258.00 


By K L Wong

(First edition was written by Daniel KS Tan)

Book Review from the First Edition:

"...Numerous checklists (and) ...A good range of sample forms and affidavits are also included ... Many matters not dealt with in the statute books but which are a matter of administrative practice are also covered ...  this is a very useful and practical book ..."       Singapore Journal of Legal Studies

Foreword from the First Edition:

"...well written, complete and accurate a reference ... on probate practice...the book will be of much use to lawyers ..."                              Justice Judith Prakash, Judge, Supreme Court of Singapore

The first edition was published in 2000, since then many changes have taken place.

Completely revised and updated, with checklists and sample documents throughout its pages, this highly recommended practical book, Non-Contentious Probate Practice in Singapore 2nd Edition, is still one-of-its-kind in Singapore.

Comprehensive and User-friendly

Lawyers, legal assistants and paralegals will find this book extremely instructive.  The book will also help them to work more quickly and efficiently as well as guide them on the use of the Court and estate duty forms.  It can even be a useful source of reference for laymen who are interested in this area of the law as it is written and explained in a straightforward manner.

NOTE: Checklists and sample documents (letters, affidavits, powers of attorney) will be emailed to you in a file for your use.
