I give all my half share and interest in the freehold property to my Trustees upon trust with the consent of my husband during his life to sell the same and to hold the net rents and profits until sale and the net income from the proceeds of sale in Trust for my husband during his life and after his death my Trustees shall hold the said share in such property if unsold or the net proceeds of sale of the investments representing the same upon trust to distribute the same in the following manner:-
If I shall survive my said husband I give legacies of £5000 to each of my grandchildren.
As to the remainder to the said(name) (myself) and my son (name) as survive me in equal shares or to the survivor absolutely provided that if either beneficiary dies in my lifetime leaving children who attain the age of eighteen years then the share of the beneficiary so dying shall be held in trust for such children as aforesaid and if more than one in equal shares absolutely.
well that is very disappointing because I know that my mother would not have wanted half of her estate to go to his wife or her family. In fact his wife has read the will in the same way that I have in that his share goes to me. He didn't have a will so what do I do now?
