Lasting Powers of Attorney Video in Scunthorpe - Victoria Norman explains
The Laws of Intestacy
Many people don’t realise that without a will in place, the law decides how their money and possessions are distributed (following the intestacy rules). You lose the right to choose. The result may not be what you would have wanted, or may cause future legal problems for those you love.

When someone passes away their assets are first used to pay off any debts, then distributed, either in accordance with the terms of their will, or in the absence of a Will, according to a set of laws known as the Laws of Intestacy. In order to deal with the estate a court order known as a Grant of Representation may need to be obtained. If there is a Will, it is known as a Grant of Probate. If there is no Will, it is known as a Grant of Letters of Administration. Find out more at our Estate Administration page.
