Intestate Estates

When someone dies without making a Will the Intestacy Rules dictate where assets are distributed. Our team of lawyers are on hand to assist with the administration of the Estate.

Our lawyers deliver a first class service and understand the importance of getting the administration correct in accordance with the Intestacy Rules as there is no Will available which would have otherwise been used to determine the distribution of assets.


Our expertise includes:

Establishing who is entitled to what under the Intestacy Rules


Advice relating to any Trusts set up through the Intestacy Rules


Advice in respect of any potential claims which another party may have on the Estate


Administration of the Estate of the deceased which includes: identifying assets and liabilities, application to Court for Grant of Letters of Administration, payment of liabilities, distribution of estate in accordance with the Intestacy Rules and preparation of Estate Accounts


Dealing with the Income Tax, Capital Gains Tax and Inheritance Tax reporting of the deceased


Advice relating to any jointly owned property
