Unmarried partners can miss out if one of them dies without having made a will, warned Cheshire-based solicitor Rhodd Humphreys.
She said the surviving partner might be plunged into ‘serious financial problems’ if there was no will and if there had been no registered civil partnership.
‘If you die without a will, there are statutory rules which dictate how the money and possessions should be allocated.
The rules also limit the amount that certain people can receive on your death,’ she noted.
