If you die without making a Will (also known as Intestacy), your property and possessions might not go to your nearest loved ones.

If someone dies without leaving a will, this is called Intestacy.

When someone dies it is usually assumed that all their property and possessions will automatically go to the nearest loved ones. Unfortunately things are not always that straight forward. If no Will has been made or a Will cannot be found the person is said to have died intestate and strict rules apply.

The intestacy rules are quite complicated and cover who can administer the property and possessions left, who will inherit and how much they will receive.

The first step is always to establish who should be administering the estate. This would usually be the next of kin who are determined following the Rules of Intestacy.
