Customer Question

Hello
I am both a joint executor and joint trustee of my later fathers estate. I was also a beneficiery until I entered into a deed of variation to pass my 30% of the estate to my nephew. This was for personal reasons at the time but I have recently learned the implications of doing so. The deed of variation was completed just before the 2 year cut off period and was entered into around 2 years ago.
Is it possible to revoke the deed of variation on the following grounds:
1. It was done quickly and the Solicitor did not explain the consequences of what I was doing.
2. I didn't speak to my nephew before I did it. I spoke to him recently and he doesn't want this arrangement.
Are points 1 and or 2 valid to get the deed of variation revoked?
Submitted: 3 years ago.
