Re: I can retireHave you seen on TV these scrounging companies that give you money against the house when you die ( equity release they call it). You work all your life to get a house and possibly leave it to a relative, and these vultures hover about for easy pickings.
Re: I can retireExcellent news Primus, if you've got plenty of hobbies and/or interests it will be the best thing you'll ever do.....but if you get bored easily then keep working in some kind of capacity....

Re: I can retirepeople that die intestate, ( not leaving a will) the government has the estate that is left until someone makes a claim. As for the house I suspect it would be sold and the money from it also would go into the deceased estate.
