Default Re: Beneficiary in will -- Friend passed away, his ex girlfriend is listed as benefic

I wish to inform you that beneficiary of the will gets the property and in its absence legal heirs have the right to have property. In this regard if beneficiary intends to pass on property to some other person then she may first receive the property of your friend and can then pass the property to some other person. Beneficiary of the property generally have the right to have property and after property is passed on to beneficiary then beneficiary can pass the property to any person. However if beneficiary refuses to first have the property then it cannot be passed to third person directly because then beneficiary has never become the owner and hence beneficiary has not got right to transfer property.
