According to a Lianhe Wanbao report, back in July, 3 siblings in Singapore in Court over $3.1m inheritance – involving a semi-detached house along Sunrise Avenue and a shophouse unit.
The parents who ran the grocery store for a living made a will, leaving the HDB shophouse and semi-detached house with a total price of about 3.1 million to their young children, but the eldest son said that he was the most favored by his parents after graduating from the University of Cambridge. When the two elders gave birth, they had decided that the eldest son would inherit the real estate, and for this reason he was listed as a joint homeowner.
The two sides were in a stalemate. The youngest son and the second daughter filed with the court as executors, requesting the high court to rule that all the rights and interests of the shophouse, and two-thirds of the rights and interests of the bungalows, are counted as the parents’ estate, rather than the eldest son dominating the two. real estate.
The semi-detached had been sold for S$1.6 million in 2020, with two-thirds of the proceeds currently being held by the court. The shophouse, which has a market price of around S$1.5 million, is currently being rented out.
In their individual wills, both parents had willed the shophouse and landed unit to their youngest son.
However, both properties were co-owned by their parents and the eldest brother, leaving 3 siblings in Singapore in Court over $3.1m inheritance.
