Hi thereI take it that this is for course work? If so, I'm not sure if the question is asking you for ways on how the wording can be changed or whether it is just asking what would happen to these various legacies if the Testator died.
THIS IS A PROBLEM QUESTION ON THREE CERTAINTIES ... WHAT THE QUESTION IS ASKING ME TO EXPLAIN THE LEGAL PROBLEMS ARISING FROM THE DRAFT WILLS .. BY STATING HOW THEY WILL BE BRIEFLY ADDRESSES
PLEASE WHEN AM I GETTING MY ANSWERS ...
A. James is under no legal obligation to use this money for the benefit of Aunt. If the Testator had wanted this sum to be used for the benefit of Aunt, he should have set up a specific trust for Aunt within the Will, leaving the sum of 60K to the Trustees to be invested for the benefit of Aunt. As it stands, James would be free to spend this 60K himself, and Aunt would not legally be entitled to challenge him if he did this.
WHAT ABOUT THE OTHER PARRTS ASWELL .. BETWEEN U DIDNT PUT NO CASES
I was typing the other answers, but if you want case law, I'm not prepared to go that much into detail.
I'll opt out, but I doubt another expert is going to be prepared to spend a considerable amount of time researching and quoting case law for you.
