What happens if you die without a Will?

If you die without making a Will, or your Will is Invalid, you will die intestate.


The court will usually appoint close family members should one be available to administer and distribute your estate in accordance to the rules of intestacy (see Intestacy Chart). This was fine when it was created in the Wills act of 1837 but does not really cater for modern life. Many people have more complicated family circumstances, for example children with a previous partner etc. If any relatives cannot be traced, then your estate will go to the Crown.

Overview

Your will lets you decide what will happens to your money, property and possessions after your death.

If you make a will you can also make sure you don’t pay more Inheritance Tax than you need to. You can find out more information on Inheritance Tax here

You can write your will yourself, but you should get advice if your will isn’t basic or if you have many assets you want to pass on.

You need to get your will formally witnessed and signed to make it legally valid.

If you want to update your will, you need to make an official alteration which is known as ‘codicil’ or make a new will.
