The number of intestate estates is likely to have grown in the pandemic years as Covid sadly generated excess deaths in cases where people would not have had the opportunity to put their financial affairs in order. This webinar will remind practitioners of the basic rules of intestate succession and encourage practitioners to make use of the services of genealogists to ensure correct distribution.


Participants will be able to:

  • Appreciate who are the correct heirs to an intestate estate
  • Update their knowledge of how administering an intestate estate differs from a testate one


  • The intestacy rules and where people go wrong
  • Administrators as clients
  • The fixed net sum
  • The matrimonial home
  • The statutory trusts
  • Post-death re-arrangements
