Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first.

Where did your late father live?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
hello, he lived in Deal, near Dover kent
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

Who does he leave his estate to?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
the person who was his carer for the last 5 years, he was 95 years old but he did have all his faculties.
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

Did he make any financial provision for you in his lifetime?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
if you mean did he leave us children money in previous wills the answer is yes. but there was not an ongoing payment of money for the last 10 years, prior to that he would distribute funds annually according to tax gift limits. i think it was £3000 per annum between me and my 2 sisters
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

What the wording means is that he deliberately chose not to make provision for you in the Will.

If you feel that this was because he was subjected to undue influence by his Carer then you are entitled to challenge the Will - but will of course have to prove it.

Please ask if you need further details

ok, thank you for the clarification, best regards
