Intestacy Rules – Solicitors in Gosforth Serving Newcastle upon Tyne, the North East and Nationally

Intestacy Solicitors in Gosforth Serving Newcastle upon Tyne

When someone dies, it needs to be established who has the right to administer the estate which essentially means to deal with the deceased’s property, money and possessions. It is understood how difficult a time this can be so let us assist by taking on any administrative burdens for you and your family in a professional yet sensitive way.

The intestacy rules apply when no Will has been left by a deceased. They establish who is entitled to deal with the deceased’s assets (their “estate”) and who should inherit.

*Executors and Administrators must be aware that they face PERSONALLY LIABILITY if the estate is not administered properly *

For example, they would have to personally pay any beneficiary who does not receive the share of the estate that they are entitled to.

Ignorance of the beneficiary’s right or even their existence is no defence and there is an expectation that an estate administration will be conducted with due diligence.

It is therefore vital that if you your loved one dies you obtain legal advice immediately to ensure security, not just for you but the estate and all other interested parties also.
