Execution of the last will and testament

If the deceased person has direct heirs, an outside party can only inherit the deceased person's property as a beneficiary of their last will and testament. The last will and testament is a legal document, which the testator has drawn up to stipulate the transfer of his/her property to parties other than his/her legal heirs.
