Legal Advice 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. Our experienced solicitors can guide you through the Intestacy Rules to help you manage how the estate is divided when someone dies without a will.

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 solicitors can help you with.


Missing Relations & Beneficiaries

Missing relations and sometimes assets will need to be traced. Our intestacy solicitors 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.
