If the Will says the tenant can continue living in the flat until he passes away or leaves voluntarily, then you are bound by this I am afraid, it creates a life interest in favour of this tenant.
May I help further?
Please upload the will here if possible?
Not yet. You will get an email when I have reviewed it and responded.
The relevant wording is very clear that it is a wish and not binding:
"It is my wish (but without imposing any binding trust or obligation on them) that the beneficiaries of my Residuary Estate shall keep the property known as 24 Rugby Place, Kemptown, Brighton, East Sussex and allow KEITH BIDDLECOMBE to continue renting the property from them for the rest of his life or until he no longer wishes to do so."
So, the beneficiaries are not bound by the wish and may go against it if they wish to.
I hope this clarifies. Please leave a positive rating if so.
