This Act makes provision for the administration of (intestate) estates by persons appointed as administrators under this Act or by (probate of) will and also concerns other related matters of inheritance. Real estate (including lease) of a person dying intestate shall devolve in the manner provided by section 4, and the residuary estate of that person shall be distributed in accordance with section 54. All other real estate and personal estate to which a deceased person was entitled for an interest not ceasing on his or her death shall devolve on the personal representative, any testamentary disposition notwithstanding. Every person to whom administration of the real and personal estate of a deceased person is granted shall, subject to the limitations contained in the grant, have the same rights and liabilities and be accountable in like manner as if (s)he were the executor of the deceased. A personal representative, before giving an assent or making a transfer in favour of any person entitled, may permit that person to take possession of the land, and such possession shall not prejudicially affect the right of the personal representative to take or resume possession, or his power to transfer the land as if (s)he were in possession thereof, but subject to the interest of any lessee, tenant or occupier in possession or in actual occupation of the land.
