Prior to distributing an estate it is vital that all debts, taxes and funeral expenses are paid.
Great care is needed to ensure that all legal obligations are met by your executors prior to distributing the estate. If the estate is not distributed in accordance with legal requirements, some parts of the process can be missed and your executors could be personally liable for any mistakes made and any beneficiary missing out on inheriting.
Dying intestate could leave your loved ones unprovided for and in financial hardship.
People are often under the misconception that if they are married or in a civil partnership that they do not need to make a Will and that everything they leave will automatically pass to their spouse or civil partner, THIS IS NOT TRUE!
When someone has passed away and their estate has been administered and Probate granted if required, their estate will need to be distributed to the chosen beneficiaries according to their Will.
If someone has passed away without a Will, this is called intestacy. When this happens the Law decides how the estate is distributed; this, may be contrary to your wishes.
