The law sets out rules if you die without a Will.
For example, if the deceased is survived by a spouse and children, the surviving spouse will receive all the personal chattels and a legacy of £250,000. The balance is divided as to half to the surviving spouse and the remaining half to the children.
If you are not married, your partner will not inherit from your estate.
We would strongly advise that a Will is made, allowing you to provide for your intended beneficiaries and to protect your family and loved ones.
