When a person dies their financial affairs have to be dealt with, irrespective of whether or not they left a Will. This can be an extremely difficult and distressing time and our specialist team of Probate Lawyers have the experience, skill and understanding to take the pressure from you. We will help you understand the terms of any Will and explain what needs to happen next. We will also help you through the process of what to do if someone dies without a Will (Intestacy).
From 6 February 2020 the ‘Statutory Legacy’ will increase from £250,000 to £270,000 – if a person dies without a Will & their estate is worth £270,000 or less it will all pass to the surviving spouse/civil partner & anything above £270,000 will be split 50/50 with the surviving spouse/civil partner & any children.
Make sure your estate is distributed in accordance with your wishes by making a Will!
