Bereavement is a really difficult time for any family, and if the deceased did not have a will, it only makes things harder. Without a will your estate will be left according to the rules of intestacy. These general rules may not give the best result for your individual family circumstances. For example, if you are married or in a civil partnership, depending on the size of your estate and how assets are owned, your spouse or civil partner may not automatically inherit all of your assets.
