The solicitors have instigated the deeds of variation to ask the beneficeries from the 2003 will to comply with her last wishes and insstructions would a judge be able to do this as 6 out of 7 have already agreed verbaly to sign the deed only my relative has to make her decisionHave just re read this. The earlier will is still valid. The later will includes charities. As Sue said, they are very much a business these days and are notorious about getting their money and they don't care who they upset to do it.
I would like to know who instigated the deed of variation and why were the intended beneficiaries even told about a will that isn't valid?
To me, it stinks.
The earlier will is still valid and should be used.
Let alone what the LA will say about deprivation of assets!
