This Act provides rules concerning how property passes on a person‘s death. This includes reforms which relate to the rectification of wills; the effect of divorce, dissolution or annulment on a will or special destination; and the revival of a revoked will. It concerns, among other things, survivorship, the provision of new rules where there is uncertainty about the order of death, forfeiture, estate administration, protections for trustees and executors in certain circumstances and for persons acquiring title in good faith.
