Can a person inherit if they caused the deceased’s death?

  • If the death was caused by a crime, such as murder or arson, no.
  • If the death was unintentional, such as by an accident or caused by a person who was insane, yes.

These rules were recently confirmed by the court in Re Fenotti Estate.
