Terms of Will

If you are considering making a Will that disinherits some of your children, it is advisable to discuss your reasons for doing so fully, with your Will Writer/Solicitor, to avoid the possibility of a challenge to your Will after your death.

In a recent case a daughter challenged the validity of her Mother’s Will when she found that her mother had left everything to her four sons and had completely disinherited her three daughters. The challenge was based on the fact that her mother could not speak English and the Will writer could not speak Gujurati. The mother’s instructions were relayed to the Will writer by a family friend who spoke both languages. The daughter alleged that her mother did not fully understand the nature of the Will.

The Court found that the mother had given the Will writer full reasons for her decision to disinherit her daughters and it was therefore clear the she fully understood the implications of her Will.
