◤知多點◢遺囑信託人不履行職務 繼承人如何繼承遺產?


問:遺囑信託人在死者過世後,未執行死者生前所立下的遺囑,而導致受益人無法獲得遺產,請問受益人、死者的家屬要如何處理?

答:根據1959年遺囑認證及遺產管理法令第16條文, 如果死者生前所委託的遺囑執行人沒有履行責任去執行遺囑,死者的家屬能向法庭申請附有遺囑的遺產管理證書 (Letters of Administration with Will Annexed)。



法庭會把相關遺產管理證書授予法庭認為適合管理遺產的人,以讓相關人士執行遺囑以及處理遺產。

Section 16 Probate and Administration Act – On Failure of Executors
Where(a) no executor is appointed by a will;
(b) the executor or all the executors appointed by will are legally incapable of acting as such, or have renounced;
(c) no executor survives the testator;
(d) all the executors die before obtaining probate or before having administered all the estate of the deceased; or
(e) the executors appointed by any will do not appear and extract probate,letters of administration with the will annexed may be granted to such person as the Court deems fit to administer the estate: Provided that a prior right to the grant shall belong to the following persons in the following order:


(i) a universal or residuary legatee;
(ii) a personal representative of a deceased universal or residuary legatee;
(iii) such person or persons, being beneficiaries under the will, as would have been entitled to a grant of letters of administration if the deceased had died intestate;
(iv) a legatee having a beneficial interest; and
(v) a creditor of the deceased.
