My uncle recently passed away with no will. His never had a wife/ girlfriend and doesn't have children. I've been told that brothers and sisters are next in line, but apart from 2 of 5 siblings they had nothing to do with my uncle what so ever. Not since the 22+ years I've been alive. Me my brother and my mum lived with my uncle for most of my life 17 years roughly, he and my mum had a falling out about 3 years ago and since then my Aunty has passed away leaving 4 siblings he wanted nothing to do with and nor did they want something to do with him. And 1 deseased. Me and my brother where the only family that wanted anything to do with him, and we were the only family he spoke to. When my uncle was in hospital me and my brother notified the rest of the family and not one family member showed we were the only ones that visited and we were there almost everyday. Ive since spoke to my uncles best friend since the passing of my late uncle, and he asked about a will and whatnot I explained the situation to him and he said I can't understand why he wasn't smart enough to write a will but he said they've had conversations before about death and whatnot and my uncle told him he would roll over in his grave if anyone of his brothers or sisters got there hands on his money and that he wanted my and my brother to get his assets personally I don't want the money but I couldn't let them get it not a hope in hell but my question is do we have a legal right 2 claim can we win?
