What if there is no Will?

If a person dies without leaving a Will they have died Intestate and their belongings and possessions i.e. Estate may not pass entirely to the surviving partner or children. We can advise on the complex intestacy rules. If you do not wish your Estate to pass under the Intestacy Rules then it is important to make a Will setting out your wishes. This is especially important for unmarried couples or those with step children.
