Many potential mistakes can be made in this area if the Rules of Intestacy are misunderstood. It must not be assumed that all of the estate will automatically go to the surviving spouse or immediate next of kin. In most cases it is important that the family tree is understood in detail in order to apply the Rules of Intestacy correctly. It is essential that errors are not made in the distribution of the estate when there is no Will.
