no his parents are dead but he has a brother and a sister.

Thank you.

This answer assumes that you survive him by 28 days or more.

Assuming that his estate will be worth more than 250,000 pounds, you will be entitled to all his personal possessions, whatever their value, and the first 250,000 of his assets (including any property).

You will also get one half interest for life in the remaining half of his estate and his children will get the other half immediately and your one half interest in this remaining half of his estate on your death.
