Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good afternoon, thak you for your question, I am sorry to hear that you have lost your mother. As your mother's wishes are not included in the Will they are not legally binding and you do not have any discretion to amend the contents of the Will. You could separately if you wish, make gifts from your own shares to the grandchildren but there is no legal basis for requiring that you do so.
thank you, ***** ***** is in agreement and the sums are quite large you can vary the Will using a Deed of Variation, but if you want to gift something yourself to the grandchildren and the amounts are quite small then you can just give them money directly.
Do you need any further assistance?
Then I would stick with the terms of the Will and you each give your own children what you wish from your own shares. As I said, it is only your mother's wish that the grandchilren receive anything, it is not legally binding on the executors to follow those wishes.
Were the properties separate gifts or are they part of the remainder?
So he shouldn't receive more than you, that should be evened up.
That's good. I hope you resolve the other issue.
Thank you, ***** ***** good weekend.
