Rules of intestacy-no spouse but children, Financial Accounting

The intestate leaves no spouse but children

The net estate devolves upon the surviving children and is divided equally between them. If any child has not, at the time of intestate's death, reached his majority, his share of property will be held in trust until he reaches the age of 18 years or, in the case of a female until she marries under that age.

Example:

Mr A dies intestate; his wife Mrs A died some years ago. Mr A is survived by his sons B (22 years old) and C (18 years only).  His daughter is at school; she is not yet married.  His net estate is worth Shs.3m. How will his property be divided?

It will be divided equally between B, C and D. D's share will be held in trust see Chapter 8) until she reaches the age of 18 years, or until she marries, if she marries before she reaches the age of 18. If a child of the deceased intestate predeceases him, but leaves his or her own issue (i.e. children, grandchildren, etc.), then the issue take, through degrees, in equal shares, the share which their parent would have taken had he not pre-deceased the intestate (PER STIRPES RULE).
