When there is no Will
If you do die without a will (known as ‘intestate’), contrary to common belief your estate is not automatically gifted to the State. The current law provides for a strict order in which your eligible relatives will inherit your estate. If you have no eligible relatives, and did not make a will to gift friends, charities or other chosen beneficiaries, then your estate will pass to the State.
For individuals who formed close relationships with friends or distant relatives, not making a will, and relying on the operation of the statutory formulas can produce unsatisfactory results.
If you are unsure about how your estate will be inherited by your relatives, simply contact us online or give us a call.
