What Happens if a Person Dies Without a Will?

Death often takes us by surprise. It is an unfortunate affair, and can leave us reeling through stages of bereavement. Often, due to an accidental death, or an inability to come to terms with a medical condition, our loved ones will pass without leaving a will. 59% of UK adults don’t have a will! This is called intestacy: the state in which a deceased’s estate is left without an executor.

In England and Wales, Intestacy is governed by a set of […] Read more

For example, studies have long suggested that the death of a loved one increases the rate of psychological disorders amongst surviving individuals (Parkes, 1980). While dealing […] Read more
