Following a death, the family should appoint a solicitor to examine all paperwork relating to the affairs of the deceased and attend to the administration involved in the winding-up of the Estate. This involves the in-gathering of the Estate funds and the determining of Estate liabilities. Where there is a Will, the solicitor will inform beneficiaries of their entitlement. In some cases trusts may arise under the provisions of a Will that could last for many years. Where the deceased has left no Will, the estate will be divided in terms of the law on intestate succession.
