If there is no Will

If the deceased has not left a will, the estate is distributed according to a statutory order, see Distribution of an intestate estate.

It is not possible to obtain probate if a deceased person has not left a will. Instead it is usually necessary to apply to the court to appoint an administrator to carry out the order of the court known as letters of administration, see Probate and Letters of Administration.
