Problem

Dying intestate

Other Names:
Failure to make a will
Nature:

If a person has not made a will, in most countries the division of their estate will be based on the laws of intestacy, (even reverting to the government) and not the wishes of the deceased.

Incidence:

A survey in the UK found that only 41% of married people had made a will. Altogether in the UK, two-thirds of people do not make wills.
