Hi, unless your parents made Mutual Wills (which means both of them agreed that they would not make a further Will, and which confirmation is clearly stated in the Wills), your Mother would be free to make a new Will at any stage now or in the future. I must say it is very uncommon for Mutual Wills to be made, but you would need to check the wording of the Wills yourself to see if they are Mutual Wills or not. I hope this assists and sets out the legal position. If I have assisted, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer. Kind Regards Al
Hi, thanks for your reply. It would be normal for Husband and Wife Wills to state that everything passes to each other, and then to the children on the second death. This appears to be the case with your parents Wills. So, your Mother certainly does NOT need to make a new Will, and whenever anything happens to her, all her Estate (and any monies/assets she may have inherited from your Father) will pass to you. I hope this clarifies the position. Kind Regards Al
