Good morning and thank you for the question. I'll do my best to resolve this for you, please give me time to review the document and I will revert back to you shortly.

Please note that our discussions on this site are for general information purposes and do not create an lawyer-client relationship. It is always recommended that you consult with a local solicitor for specific legal information.

I'm assuming that your father is still alive, or at least that he survived your mother.

At paragraph 6, he was to inherit the entirety of her estate.

The following paragraphs ONLY applied if he did not survive her, at which point all of the other clauses would have followed, with her estate being held in trust for you and your siblings and managed by trustees in your interests as set out thereafter.

The reference to age 30 comes in this section of the will.

Assuming your father did inherit everything as per paragraph 6, there would be nothing to come to you at age 30 as this entire provision for the trust was to be only triggered if your father did not survive your mother.

Can I clarify anything further today?
