As two-thirds of people die intestate, up to date guidance on the complex laws of intestacy is essential for practitioners.Sherrin & Bonehill
is the only specialist work on this subject and provides the definitive guide to both law and practice. The work is split into four key parts: Introduction and history; Personal representatives and the administration; The entitlement and distribution; and Matters affecting entitlement.
Major legislation, such as the Law Reform (Succession) Act
1995 and Trustee Act
2000, has led to the revision of a number of chapters and the impact of the Civil Procedure Rules is considered in detail.
The work also incorporates all the relevant cases reported in the supplement to the last edition, along with those reported in the major Law Reports since 1998, as well as some major intestacy cases in other jurisdictions.
