Letters of Administration

What happens if someone dies without a will?

If someone dies without having made a valid will, they are said to have died intestate. The Administration of Estate Act 1925 determines who is responsible for administrating the estate and who the beneficiaries are. This can be a complex process and of course it is very important that the correct persons administer the estate and the beneficiaries are correctly identified.
