Hello all. My name is Praba Pillai. Five years ago my brother, Ganes went to bed one night and did not wake up the next morning. He was only 49. Your story may not be the same as mine but I’m sure in one chapter of your life, you or someone you know has experienced loss. Our story may differ but we can agree the challenges are many.
My brother had many belongings in his name and like many people he did not think of writing a will. I had to learn the tough realities of dealing with several branches of government, lawyers, banks and the courts. I had to also quickly learn the difference between a Letter of Administration and Probate, the Wills Act 1959, the Distribution Act 1958, and all the other legal parlance that came stacked with it.
Five years have passed and at the time of writing this piece, the transfer of title of my brother’s house is still in the works. That is the tough realities of not having a will.
My motive is simple and sincere! To create awareness among Malaysians on the importance of writing a Will but without all the legal issues that go behind it and to give an affordable alternative.
That is what we do at WillsMalaysia. We offer a blueprint for a better tomorrow. It is Your Legacy, You Decide!
