Inheritance and beneficiary

Hi all,

I'm a little confused here.  I have a female friend who is half-Malaysian.  She is currently over there trying to sort out her inheritance from her father, but has hit a stumbling block in that the Courts want her to name a beneficiary herself.

She is a widower with no other family so has no one to name, so she has asked me to be named as her boyfriend (which I'm not).

Is this right or has she misinterpreted something?

Thanks,
Tom

Meaning that she has dual citizenship?

Marry her and all inheritance problems solved.

She could earlier declared in court that she has no surviving relatives or no next of kin.

What is going to happen to this property (assuming) when or if she dies? Becomes abandoned ghost house?

What she is asking of you is to be a Guarantor, not a Beneficiary.
The Court needs a Guarantor in case something goes wrong.
( like maybe her father had a mistress and later the mistress wants a share )
( if she is unable to provide the share, then the guarantor pays la )
