SB 15-48 Succession (Scotland) Bill

The law of succession, also known as inheritance law, determines what happens to somebody’s property and possessions when he or she dies. This briefing considers the  Succession (Scotland) Bill introduced in the Scottish Parliament in June 2015. This Bill makes provision for changes to some specific areas of the existing law.
