The two daughters were alive when their father died. One daughter’s children take the mother’s share. The other daughter’s husband took her share but died so through his estate it passes to his brother. If the nephew is the brothers son he gets nothing. If the nephew is the son of a deceased sibling the nephew gets half by way of representation. This assumes that the deceased daughter and her husband left no wills. I hope that helps.

You would have to find out what the problem is. The only acceptable reason for an estate to last that long would be that there is an ongoing trust as regards ***** ***** If this is a case of a failure on the part of the lawyers then it is a substantial failure. A challenge should be made by someone with an interest in the estate.
