On the death of an owner his personal property devolves upon his personal representatives, subject to the administration of the estate, and the beneficial title is transferred in accordance with either his testamentary disposition1 or, in the case of an intestacy, the statutory provisions regulating the distribution of the property of an intestate2.
Every person of full age3, that is 18 years, has power to dispose by will of all the personal estate4 to which he is entitled at his death5, although such a disposition may be affected by a court order for reasonable financial provision out of the estate
