Good morning Clare,
The terms of the two wills are as follows,
In the first will the trustees are the solicitor with whom the will was drawn up and myself.
The primary beneficiary is my father should he survive my step mother, as he did not then the beneficiaries are my brother, two sisters and I. Each of us are bequeathed specific items from the house (sets of wine glasses, or decanters, pictures etc.) My brother is to have all of my step mothers personal effects like her watch and rings. The property and the remainder of the estate is to be converted into cash and equally divided between the four of us once all debts have been settled.
In the second will the trustees are my brother and I.
The beneficiaries are my brother two sisters and I, each of us are bequeathed the same specific items as in the first will. The property is to be converted into cash and equally divided between the four of us. All of the remaining cash is to go to my brother once all of the debts have been settled.
In both wills there is provision for a beneficiaries share to go to their children if they are not alive to receive it themselves.
At the time when the first will was drawn up my father made a will with identical text but in the first instance bequeathing all to my step mother.
