If there are no living relatives, your estate passes to the Crown.
If you die intestate
No account will be taken of your wishes or intentions as to what should happen to your estate. If you are married, you could be mistaken if you believe that everything you own will automatically pass to your wife or husband. Some people whom you actually dislike, or have never even met, may benefit from your death.
In the absence of an Executor, an administrator has to be found to sort out your affairs. This person may require considerable help and guidance from a professional, such as a solicitor experienced in probate.
The delay in appointing an administrator is likely to means that your family will not benefit immediately from the distribution of your possessions, adding an unnecessary burden at what is already a time of great emotional stress.

It is a remarkable fact that only three in every ten people in this country have bothered to make a Will. The remaining seven will have no control over what happens to their hard earned possessions, as these will be divided up amongst remaining family or relatives, or my even go the Crown.
If you do not have a Will you may be familiar with many of the usual reasons people give for not having one.
- Death seems so far away
- You are always too busy to think things through
- Accidents only happen to other people
- It is too complicated
- Solicitors are expensive and so on
You may not think you are rich enough to have a Will. Yet you are probably far wealthier than you realise and once you add up the value of your house, car, savings and possessions as well as any investments including Life Policies you may have taken out, you will realise the true value of your “estate”.
Making Your Will
SHEAdvisor LTD makes making your Will simple. Our online questionnaire takes 10 minutes to complete. We will then thoroughly check the questionnaire to ensure that all legal aspects have been considered and your beneficiaries will receive the full amount they are entitled too.
We will then draw up the Will and either send you the original Will or a Copy (See Depository Facility below).
The cost for this service is £40 per person or £60 per 2 adults within one household.
We offer you the confidence that upon the event your Will is required it can be located and your last wishes carried out. Our depository service for the storage of your Will ensures it will never be lost.
After the execution of your Will we send a copy to you and store the original in our large fireproof vault. This ensures that the original Will is kept safe until such time as it is needed.…
