We all made our Wills at the same time with the Solicitor. We were told that, to avoid tax, we could leave £325.000. My brother thought that we would both get this amount + his share of our house and the remainder could go to Charity.
The Solicitor did not explain that the £32500. would be just once, minus some tax on his share of the house minus £10.000.for Executor minus Expenses. This left us with 4% of the cash.
The Solicitor admitted later that she did not understand his wishes and told us to change our Wills.
It is a complete mess.
