Portia Ahiawordor, a lawyer and volunteer with the Legal Assistance Network, has advised couples to hurry up to invest in large family houses.
In a lecture on 3FM's flagship family mentoring program, IDEAL HOME, she said that building a building on a land that belongs to your extended family is a futile adventure.
He left with four children. According to the letter, she and her late husband invested in the construction of a building on a property that belongs to her husband's family.
After the man's death, his family members throw her out of the house.
Even after her husband's death, she finds out that he had three children with another woman. She was concerned about the loss of the house she had built with her husband and other real estate.
Attorney Ahiawordor said the widow had no case on the matter.
She cannot claim the house because the land belongs to the husband's family, the lawyer said.
She adds that even if the man left a will, it would not be valid because the family can only take them in for a maximum of six months by law.
Lawyer Ahiawordor has therefore advised couples and potential couples to be careful when investing in family real estate.
She adds that your partner's property is not necessarily yours and advises the parties involved to always have a security plan.
IDEAL HOME will be broadcast live on Saturdays at 5:30 a.m. on 3fm 92. 7.
