The estate of a deceased person may be disposed or distributed by a Will or without a will.
The right of a person to dispose his estate in accordance with the provisions of his Will is not absolute and is limited to the “disposable part”.
A person who passes away without leaving a Will is said to have died intestate. In this case his estate may be distributed to his relatives based on the degree of their relationship through an administration process which is supervised by the Cyprus courts.
The above should be used as a source of general information only. It is not intended to give a definitive statement of the law.
