Dying without a will

Dying without a will

SKU: 4.24
  • Advice

    If you do not make a will then you will die intestate, the people you love may not inherit what you wanted them to. Intestacy rules will apply in this situation.


    Joint property – there is a chance this can be inherited by the person who jointly owned the property with the deceased. This includes housing, bank or building society accounts. Any money inherited via this route will not count towards the estate of the deceased.


    Spouses – if you were married to or in a civil partnership with the deceased you will inherit primarily. Any divorced persons or cohabiting partners will not inherit. 


    Children – if there are 2 or more children the estate will be split among them; they will receive their share when they are 18 or marry before.


    Grandchildren/great-grandchildren – they cannot inherit from the estate of an intestate person unless either their parent or grandparent has died before the intestate person, their parent is alive when the intestate person dies before reaching the age of 18 without having married or formed a civil partnership.
