What happens if I don’t have a will?
At Temperley Taylor, our Manchester intestate lawyers are some of the most experienced in the region – putting you at the heart of what we do. If someone dies without making a will, it’s known as dying ‘intestate’. This basically means that, as your wishes haven’t been recorded, any estate that is left will be divided using rules set out by law.
If your wishes include some or all of your estate being passed to your loved ones or a certain charity, these wishes may not be met if you die intestate. And, dealing with personal possessions, finances or property can become difficult if you don’t have a will.
What happens if a loved one dies without a will?
If you’ve recently lost a loved one who didn’t make a will, we can help you and your family find the quickest and most cost-effective solution to dealing with their estate.
At Temperley Taylor, we know that intestate deaths can be a difficult time for the families involved so it’s always better to act as quickly as you can. Our highly experienced wills and probate solicitors have worked on lots of complex cases over the years and will work hard to ensure that the fairest outcome is achieved.
What are the rules of intestacy?
If a loved one dies without a will, legally it’s known as dying ‘intestate’. As the deceased hasn’t left any guidelines about what should to their estate, a legal safety net, known as the ‘rules of intestacy’ come into effect. This avoids a free-for-all with regards to any property, finances or personal possessions.
