Intestacy

Intestacy

Intestacy.  If Someone Dies Without a Will

If someone dies without a Will (and approximately 65% of us do) then the estate will be administered according to the laws of intestacy.

Quick Enquiry


Grant of Letters of Administration

A Grant of Letters of Administration will be required and administrators rather than executors will be appointed. Intestacy can lead to a number of problems that our lawyers can help you with.


Missing relations & beneficiaries

Missing relations and sometimes assets will need to be traced. We can assist in locating missing beneficiaries, or if they have died, obtaining death certificates.


We provide a national service to private clients via our offices in London, Watford, Bristol and Birmingham. For clients based in North Bristol, we also have a dedicated office at 106 Henleaze Road.

To discuss any aspect of intestacy, when a family member dies without a Will, please contact Michelle Rose on 0117 314 5246.

 

Solicitors must be used to dealing with the ups and downs, chops of changes that can occur during a lifetime. It would be easy to become hardened to these things when dealing with client.... I remain all the more thankful to have been advised by a caring executor and a caring firm who have made it their business simply to meet the deceased's wishes.
