There are strict legal rules as to who does what when someone dies without a Will and the Intestacy rules must be followed.
Under the rules of Intestacy, there is a strict legal order as to who may apply to be the Administrator (the equivalent of the Executor) in an intestate estate. It is essential to ensure that you take the appropriate legal advice to ensure you are not doing something you have no authority to do.
The Intestacy rules also determine who inherits the deceased's assets and in what proportion. Failure to administer the estate correctly can be a very costly mistake and for this reason, professional advice should always be sought.
