Customer Question

My husband was named as executor in my fathers will but unfortunately died of cancer. My father has altered his will and given my late husbands inheritance to my sister-in-law, can he do this?

Hello,

Yes, your father is free to amend his Will at any time before he dies provided he has mental capacity to do so i.e. he knows what he is doing.

I am sorry if this is not what you wish to hear.
