Are you really sure there's no Will?

If there's no Will the Estate of the deceased will be distributed by the Intestacy Rules apart from jointly owned property e.g. bank accounts will pass by survivorship to the surviving co-owner.

The Intestacy Rules can result in dispute and confusion because all beneficiaries inheriting from the estate must be identified before the estate can be distributed. In some cases genealogists can be instructed to locate beneficiaries and insurance can be taken out to protect against the risk of beneficiaries coming forward to claim a share of the estate at a later date.
