I’m still going to need the will please. It’s a very odd request. It’s tantamount to an instruction from the grave which is not enforceable.
If it went your sister first then what’s to stop her spending everything meaning that the cousin gets nothing?
If on the other hand it is to be held on trust by your sister until she dies and only then does it go to the cousin, (I can’t think for one moment why that would happen) then under the rule in Saunders v Vautier if “all beneficiaries” are over 18 and of sound mind, they can bring the trust to an end regardless of when it’s supposed to vest (in this case on your sister’s death) which means that your sister, if she’s the executor, could pay out the money now.
However notwithstanding any of that, if your sister has the money and your sister wants to give it to the cousin, no one has been disadvantaged so there is no one to object or bring a claim in any event.
If you let they have the wording, I can confirm that.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
I am happy to answer any specific points arising from this.
