Can I make a claim against an Estate if I thought I was going to benefit? 

If you could have reasonably expected to benefit from a person’s Estate, you may be able to make an application to the Government Legal Department for a ‘discretionary grant’ from an unclaimed Estate*. For example, if you provided the deceased with free services, such as washing, cleaning, cooking, shopping, repairs to their home or care which they would have usually paid for, or if you are a charity or other body that provided a lot of care to the person, at considerable expense. 
*This only applies to Estates where there is no one entitled to inherit under the Rules of Intestacy
