I take it that your Mother made a home made Will?
Could you also please confirm if your Mother's Will includes any other clauses, or whether the main body of the Will is merely the clause you have quoted to me?
I will be offline in a short while, but will be back on around 6pm.
I look forward to hearing from you.

Which part of the Uk was your mother living in when she died?
How much is her Estate worth?
Ok - all in one savings account?
I am just checking if probate is needed at all.
If it is all in one account then the answer is yes - if not then it is a maybe.
The word "property" can mean many things (and the solicitor who drafted this should have known better)
It is clear that in this context it meant everything - not just a house.
In any event you do not need to worry about the clause - you can distribute the Estate in accordance with the terms of the Will - not least because if there was no Will her chidlren would receive it all anyway.
Please ask if you need further details
Nonsense to both.
As I said - badly drafted but it is still clear what is meant
You are not responsible for Credit checking beneficiaries.
HOWEVER if you are aware that one of them is bankrupt then you have to pay that share to the Trustee in Bankruptcy
