Resolved Question:

are sole relatives(nephew and neice) of deceased aunt entitled to a claim on her will

Thank you for your question.

No, if there is a will leaving the estate, then the will prevails. Nephews and nieces have no legal rights, only children have that.

If there was no will then as sole surviving relatives you would inherit the estate but as there is a will you don't inherit the estate or any part of it unless the will makes provision for you.

I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.
