Dying intestate means you pass on without a will and the intestacy laws of your state determine the distribution of your property. While these laws vary greatly between states, in most cases, your real estate is distributed to your “heirs” in split shares.
For example, if you’re married and have children, they will inherit your property, and if single, your parents or relatives get the inheritance. Luckily, you can avoid such circumstances by hiring an estate planning attorney to draft your will.
