QUESTION: Dear Legal Wiz,
My dad left his lands in Jamaica to me by a Will. I went to Jamaica and went to one of the lands and found a cousin of my cousin living in a board house there. This cousin of my cousin living there told me that my father left that specific land for him in a Will, but I have the only Will left by my father. I already cleared up the balance owed for taxes, and got a copy of the Titles. What can I do, or can I send you a copy of the Will so you can help me?
RESPONSE: Dear Gretel,
You will need to seek to have the Will probated through the Courts, or to apply for Letters of Administration so you establish your legal rights to the lands. Afterwards you can seek to have the Title transferred to your name, where applicable. To do this a locally-based attorney-at-law can be contacted on your behalf, as there are some aspects that (s)he must address. For example the Will in your possession will need to be reviewed to see if it is legal and valid. That aside, there is some ground work that our team can do for you. You will be contacted by email for further discussion.
Anyone knowing the whereabouts of the relatives of Calvin B Williams who lived Kingston or Montego Bay is being asked to contact this mediahouse which is based in Florida, or the Legal Wiz team. Mr Williams died in 2010.
