Not necessarily – If there is no Will your assets will be
distributed under the strict rules of intestacy. If you are
married with no children your spouse/civil partner will be
entitled to your entire estate. However if you have children
and your estate is over £250,000 your spouse/civil partner
will be entitled to the first £250,000 plus the personal
chattels and half the remainder of the estate. The rest
would be split equally between your children.
