Winding an estate means an attorney has to ensure an orderly winding up of the financial affairs of the deceased, and the protection of all financial interests of the heirs. A deceased estate is effective when a person dies leaving property and or finacial interests, and a document which is a will or purports to be a will.
The rules of intestacy applies when a person dies without leaving a valid will, their property (the estate) must be shared out according to certain rules.
These are called the rules of intestacy.
A person who dies without leaving a will is called an intestate person.
After someone dies, someone (called the deceased person's 'executor' or 'administrator')
must deal with their money and property (the deceased person's 'estate').
They need to pay the deceased person's taxes and debts,
and distribute his or her money and property to the people entitled to it.
