What happens if I do not have a Will?
If you pass away without a Will, you will leave your loved ones with far more work to do after your death. It is highly likely that your possessions will not be distributed the way you want.
Instead, the government has laid down rules called intestacy rules which state who has authority to act on the distribution of your estate. These government rules also stipulate who will inherit your property and possessions. It is unlikely this will match your own wishes and it typically has a negative tax consequence as well as cause potential heartache. For example a partner may not receive anything, a house could be split and other wishes may not be followed.
