Help! My Friend's Cousin Left Him With Properties Without A Will by iInjureHerYansh: 10:25pm On Nov 12, 2020
I have a friend whose cousin left him documents of all his properties in Lagos before he died. Unfortunately the man didn't leave him a will because of his sudden death. Is it possible for him to claim those properties without a will?

Yes. Consult your lawyer

What really happened?

People don't just "leave documents of all their properties" to some cousin, and then just die

If that man has a wife and kids somewhere, you can’t claim the property. No cousin of yours will just leave properties in your hands. If you are a thief, you better return those papers or you end up in prison. If he still has parents without a family of his own, then they are his survivors.

Just tryna make enquiries for a friend. You could have asked for the full story even though it was gonna take me a whole day to narrate instead of your brainless nigerian-like assumptions


Anyways your assumptions somehow confirms that he can actually claim it. Thanks wink

I wish I could narrate the story here but it's too humongous to be typed but the man didn't have family. No wife no kids just him and my friend living in Lagos together was the closest person he had. The only p is he didn't leave him a will cos the death was sudden (accident) and that's why I'm asking if he can still claim the properties even without a will. I hope it's clear now and I can get a reasonable answer if you have any

If u had half a brain, u won't be thinking of stealing a dead persons property.
People like u end up miserable. All u do is covet another man's hardwork. We will still read about ur miserable end here.

Since you say the death was unexpected, then the man didn't leave your friend the documents of his properties. Your friend got a hold of them after he died.

The right thing to do is to get the parents and siblings of the man involved (in the presence of a Lawyer) and figure out the best way forward together.

The properties aren't his nor can he claim them, especially without a will from the deceased.

At least he has a family he comes from. He didn't just fall from heaven.
He can now share with them.

You are a liar. He didn't drop documents for his cousin before he suddenly died. You got your hands on them after he died. By the law you are not entitled to the property since there is no will no matter how you got the documents. It automatically belongs to the next of kin. By the time the real people entitled to the property comes for you with the law, you will regret ever imagining such a thing unless you kill them all too. Just peacefully go and hand over their son or brother's document

But they can claim it without a will right
You don't have to answer anyways. Can't be arguing with a nigerian brain

No you can’t. You have to go and get a letter of administration which is thorough. They will ask for the next of kin and there is a process to uncover them. If you lie on that letter of administration and use deceit to claim the properties then 100yrs of prison await you.

Why is your friemd's interest on claiming his cousin's property instead of giving the documents to the late cousin's parents/siblings?

Everything about the story reeks of ulterior motive.

Tell your so called friend to take the documents to his late cousin's family as that's the right thing to do.

IF talking the extended family then I'd understand cos the next of kin is the person that died (my friend's counsin) His parents are late. They left him the documents and he's the only child. He fell sick but no one showed up from the villa even though that my friend informed them. It was the same thing they did to his mom. The dad died a long time ago. Now if this story isn't enough for you to drop sentiments and be realistic then I don't have anything else to type with you.

He died from injuries sustained from the accident.
Re: Help! My Friend's Cousin Left Him With Properties Without A Will by iamezekwesiri: 4:53pm On Nov 13, 2020
The honorable thing for your friend to do is locating the parents of the deceased and hand the documents over to them. The deceased left it with him for him to do the right thing, not to assume ownership of the properties before Amadioha finish him. except, there's an evidence that he willed it to him which from your post isn't available.

modified....
Find the relatives and return the documents.
