  • Overview

    When someone dies without leaving a Will, the law sets out a list of people who are entitled to administer an estate and also who will benefit from the estate.

    In this case an entire family covering three generations died at the same time.  The order of the deaths could not be determined and minors were also involved.  In these circumstances the law states that the eldest is deemed to have died first and it then follows down in age order.

    We had to take each estate in turn in the order they were deemed to have died, to use the law to determine who was entitled to administer the estates and also who would benefit from the estate.  This was extremely complex given the circumstances of the deaths.

    We successfully obtained grants of letters of administration for all of the family members.
