Hi,

Thank you for your question and welcome.

My name is ***** ***** I will assist you.

If you are not married and do not have any children, your estate will just go to your closest living blood relative (i.e your next of kin).

In order to ensure your estate goes to your partner you would need to prepare a will detailing what portion of your estate you want to bequeath to her. https://www.gov.uk/make-will/overview

Can I be of any further assistance?

Kind regards
