Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Who has left her the money and what does the Will say should happen if she has not survived the Testator?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The money was left by a friend hers .I have not the will it self.

Expert:  Clare replied 2 years ago.
What happens depends entirely on the wording of the Will.
If it makes provision for what woudl happen if your mother died before her friend then she may have left it to you (and your siblings if any)
If not then the money will simply revert back to the estate
Please ask if you need further details
