No will but no wor­ries

Sunday Mail (UK) - - The Judge -

My aunt died but didn’t leave a will. She doesn’t have any chil­dren and her hus­band died years ago. He had a child from a pre­vi­ous mar­riage and she now claims she is due to in­herit. Is this the case? No. She’d have had a claim on her fa­ther’s es­tate at the time of his death but not on your aunt’s. The law of in­tes­tate suc­ces­sion ap­plies as there is no will. Speak to a so­lic­i­tor if need be but your aunt’s sis­ters and brothers in­herit once all debts and li­a­bil­i­ties have been met. The wheels have well and truly come off for mum Shelly Reilly af­ter an air­line dam­aged her daugh­ter’s pram. The family were fly­ing back from the Ca­naries with Jet2 when the pushchair was bro­ken. Shelly, 29, mum to Bray­don and Braya, said: “I’d only had it for a month and couldn’t be­lieve the state of it when it ap­peared off the con­veyor belt.” She and hus­band Ger­ard, of Tra­nent, East Lothian, com­plained.

Shelly said: “The chas­sis was bent and badly scratched and a tyre was burst.”

They called me in when Jet2 still wouldn’t cover the bill.

The air­line said they’d been pro­vided with ev­i­dence which was not pre­vi­ously forth­com­ing. They will cover the £219 re­pair.
