You can use our easy to follow flowcharts in face-to-face meetings with your clients to show them what would happen to their estate if they died without leaving a will.

If your clients die intestate (without a valid will), their personal representatives will have to distribute their estate according to the laws of intestacy.

This could mean that their estate doesn’t go to the person they would have wanted it to. How can you help make sure their life cover goes to the right person? Our handy flowcharts will help.
