Our Inheritance & Welfare team have a vast amount of experience dealing with all issues in relation to Wills and estate matters. Many people are unaware of what happens on death when a Will is not made. Our dedicated team can help you with all aspects of making a Will and help in relation to Estate Administration (in the absence of a valid Will).
7 out of 10 adults do not have a Will and without one:
• A surviving spouse will not necessarily inherit everything;
• An unmarried partner has no entitlement;
• The family home may have to be sold; and
• Children may be unintentionally disinherited.
Estate Administration (Probate or Intestacy)
When someone passes away, there are a number of important tasks that need to be completed. If the person died leaving a valid Will, then the named Executors take on this responsibility. In the absence of a valid Will, the person is said to have died “Intestate” and the Intestacy Rules determine who can be appointed as the Administrators of the estate.
The role of Executor or Administrator can be an onerous one.
The deceased’s estate may involve valuable or complex
matters and an Executor or Administrator is personally liable
for administering the estate correctly.
Every Executor or Administrator can instruct a solicitor of their choice to assist them with the estate administration and the legal fees are settled by the deceased’s estate.
