Intestate Administration (General)

by slowhands @, proud of his ancient Dean Forest roots, Monday, February 26, 2024, 12:21 (138 days ago) @ Bradley Tingle

Hi so my interpretation is that Grandfather dies without a formal will (intestate) - the surviving family share the estate - his wife if she was alive and sons etc. Life carries on, as far as the family are concerned they have done the "right" thing...

at some point there is a family dispute or maybe an asset that was "inherited" needs to be sold.

At this point the ownership is still recorded as the deceased grandfather, and to "put this right" or sell the asset legally the Grandfather's estate needs to be "Administered".

The transcript I think hints that an audit of what was Grandfathers was drawn up so that the correct legal process could be followed - many years behind

I am imagining the list being mainly disputed items, or ones that needed ownership transferred.

the 20 pounds probably represents the point at which Tax would be due for estates larger than £20

hope this helps
