They understand that sorting out a person’s property, investments, debts and other possessions (known as their Estate) and dealing with the necessary legal processes to enable those assets to be distributed is often too much to deal with at this difficult time.
When someone dies, it is necessary to establish whether they had made a Will and if so, what their wishes were so that they can be followed. If they did not make a Will then their Estate will be distributed in accordance with the Intestacy Rules which set out who is entitled to benefit from a person’s Estate when they die and haven’t left a Will.
