1. Dear Leyla, if there is a specific bequest in a will whereby a house is left to three people and there is also another gift of money to different people, as here, there is no obligation on the people who have the specific bequest of the house to pay off the people who were given money if there is no money there. Essentially, a specific bequest of a house takes place irrespective of what happens to other gifts in the will. Just because there is no money present to pay people a gift of money does not mean that a different bequest whereby a house is left to three people is altered. A specific bequest, such as a house given to three people, always takes place. It is not affected by the failure of other gifts in the will. This is how the law applies in the Republic of Ireland.
