Where you have left a valid will, that document determines what happens to your property once you pass away. Unfortunately, many people leave it to chance be it either not updating a previous will, relying upon a foreign will, or not preparing a will at all. You might think that where there is no will and you die that your property will automatically pass to your widow or widower. This is only partly true as there are detailed rules about who gets what property (as in what value of property) and the order in which close family members inherit.
