I’m asking this question for a young relative of mine and it doesn’t affect me directly. We have both googled independently for more info and neither of us can see a definite answer.
If an unmarried, childless person with no significant other, no siblings and both parents also deceased dies without a Will who inherits?
There were four cousins. One is deceased.
Am I right in assuming that the cousins would then inherit? With regard to the deceased cousin, would their share trickle down to their children ( ie cousins once removed, I think) or would their entitlement die with them?
I do appreciate any clarity on this
