What you expect to inherit when someone dies.

An inheritance will pass to a beneficiary under the terms of a will.  Providing that the will is valid, then the executor administers the will and, after paying any expenses, including testamentary expenses, arranges to pay any legacy under the will. 

In the case of someone who has died intestate (no valid will), it is still possible to receive a part of the estate if you are in one of the categories of next of kin as set out in the rules of intestacy.
