Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Rightly or wrongly, you did sign what is called a "mutual Will" back in 2004. This means, as I am sure you are aware, that you both agreed at the time not to change the beneficiaries of your Will, whenever anything happens to you. In law, you are permitted to sign a new Will, but if you nominate different beneficiaries to the ones nominated in your existing Will, those beneficiaries in your existing Will would be entitled to sue your Estate for the loss of their inheritance.
As regards ***** ***** you are free to sell it if you so wish in th efuture and you are entitled to deal with your monies as you so wish. It is just the name of the beneficiaries in your Will which you are not permitted to change.
If you feel you signed the Will, without understanding the full implications, I would suggest that you speak to a different Solicitor to the one who prepared your Will, to see if your exisiting Will is valid.
I hope this assists you and sets out the legal position.
If so, I would be grateful if you could leave positive feedback.
