What happens if you are not married and you don’t have a Will?

This question is from @People Buy People

If you don’t have a Will then the law states who inherits your estate.  These are known as the Intestacy Rules and are to be avoided if possible.  If you have children they will inherit your estate.  If you don’t have children then there are strict rules which state who inherits.  For example parents and brothers and sisters please note your partner or “common law” wife/husband will not inherit.
