my mother died in 1983 and her son earlier this year.amongst his papers was a trust deed entered into with my mother. on the signature page my mothers signature was correctly witnessed but her sons signature was not ands the space blank
i have already replied!!!
the document was a formal trust deed and not just an agreement. it required to be signed and witnessed by the parties involved. this was done but the signature of one party was not witnessed.
does this invalid the do
there was only document
trustee accepts deed is invalid but intends to apply it anyway on the grounds that it sets out the intentions of the two parties!.
my understanding is that this deed now has no legal authority The tenancy was tenants in common and the deed specifies my mothers contribution but nothing for the son who made no contribution to the purchase price. The trustee intends to award 50% to the son.Do i have grounds to object. would you like me to email to you the document. I' sorry about the delay, iv'e been in France sorting out a flooded cottage.
I'm really up against it now so if you could reapply soonest I would be very grateful
hi, thank you it was as i expected. i have to be clear about the consequences for my mother.this is not straight forward I am away until next thursday. and will explain when i get back regards rob
