Cost of dying with an outdated will is '£9,700'
The Telegraph reports: "Dying intestate or with an out-of-date will typically costs heirs £9,700 in "lost" assets, a study has claimed. Research by paid-for will registration service Wills & Assets found that 175,000 Britons struggle to track down the assets left by deceased family members, missing sums of up to £20,000 per late relative.
Bereaved heirs often turn to costly solicitors or probate detectives known as "heir hunters" to track down missing money. This costs families an extra £2,250 in fees after a loved one's death.
Half of British people fail to draw up a will, according to the research which surveyed 1,978 adults. Even individuals who leave a will risk leaving relatives out of pocket if they fail to update their assets regularly."
