What is ‘Dying Intestate’?

If you die without a will (dying intestate) your property and possessions will be divided up amongst your relatives, no matter what your relationship with them was like during your lifetime. For example, if you are not married or in a civil partnership when you die then your partner is not legally entitled to anything. This can cause a lot of physical and emotional distress to remaining family members during what is already a difficult time. In the UK it is believed that around 60% of adults do not make a will. Leave your family and friends with what they deserve and contact us today.
