What is the Meaning & Definition of intestacy

The concept which we deal then use has specific within the field of law since it is used to designate that legal procedure from which inheritance, property and heritage that someone had become the hands of its closest relatives as consequence that dies not left any Testament, i.e. not expressed his will before dying of letting their property to or which , or also this procedure applies in cases of invalid wills. In the latter case, it may happen that the deceased left a will but it is null or lost its validity for any specific reason, for example, when there is an absence of the condition imposed to who inherits when the heir time dies before the testator, when predominates a situation of disability by the heir , or simply when the heir announces its condemnation or rejection of the inheritance.
Other issues that may give way to the procedure of the intestate is that actually the will does not mention all goods that the testator has and usually in that case the decision tends to be delivered to those not considered goods to those concerned according to the provisions of the law.
It should be noted is that the word comes from the latin language and if we translate it its meaning would be without a will.
On the other hand, will be a testament that legal act through which an individual has people who will obtain, handle their goods, their heritage, all them or a bias, since has died. Usually the testator States to let their property to their loved ones and who have a blood bond with it, children, spouses, parents, brothers, or failing that to those who are part of the inner circle but that there do not have blood relationship, such as friends.
There are different types of wills: common Testament (involving two people who together have the same Act that a third inherit them), mutual will (this type two individuals who establish inherit each other, do it or who dies first will be the beneficiary of the other), Testament should (seats a disinheritance someone) and Holograph Testament (is drafted and signed by fist and letter of the testator).
Then, when an individual dies without leaving a formal will is will tell who has died intestate.
