Intestacy

Occurs when an individual dies without a valid last will and testament, such that the decedent’s estate is distributed in accordance with a state’s law of intestate succession (i.e., the estate will be distributed to the decedent’s heirs). Intestacy is usually voiced as “he died intestate,” “intestate estate,” or “intestate succession.” In probate, administration of the estate of a person without a will is handled by an administrator.
