Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
I am afraid that if your friend was not happy with his existing Will, he should have physically destroyed it or made steps himself to prepare and sign a new Will. As it does not appear he did this, in law, his Will is still valid and his Estate has to pass to the beneficiary named in it.
The fact he wanted to change his Will is not sufficient for this Will to be called invalid.
I am sorry this is not the answer you were looking for, but hope I have assisted you.
If I have assisted, I would be grateful if you could leave positive feedback.
