The person Sheila who died 2 years ago was the daughter of my uncle by his first marriage. There was some acrimony between her family and my aunt (my uncle's second wife who survived him and whose will we are discussing). In a previous iteration of my aunt's will Sheila was not mentioned. More recently, Sheila was added to the will and bequeathed some items of low value. Since Sheila died her gifts go back into the pot. Sheila has 3 surviving people (my uncle's grandchildren by his first wife). I mentioned the existence of these 3 to the solicitor in case they might come into the picture but I have not contacted them at all. The next of kin is the surviving cousin of my aunt - she is 88 and is unable to even attend a funeral, and is happy that I deal with everything.
I do not know anything about my uncle's first wife or whether my uncle was involved in any settlement when he remarried. Is there a chance that Sheila's family might contest my aunt's will if they become aware of her death?
Is there anything I have to be aware of?
Thank you for your replies. Can you confirm that I have made a single £38 payment to your company and will not be charged further unless I ask further questions?
I am unclear about the free trial but am more than happy to have made the single payment for your excellent handling of my queries.
