Inheritance law changes come into force

Changes to the rights of people whose spouses or civil partners die without making a will have come into force.

For married couples with no children, the surviving partner will now inherit their spouse's entire estate, rather than £450,000 then half of the rest.

For those with children, the surviving spouse will get the first £250,000 as before, but they will now get half of the remainder - rather than just interest on that amount.
