Re: Revoked will
I’m wondering if this instance was actually a variation of the Will which has to happen within two years of the person dying. Essentially it varies the distribution of the estate and is sometimes known as a Deed of family arrangement. It doesn’t matter whether the deceased left a Will or not. So I’m thinking maybe a relative came forward?toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Below is the summary from the gov.uk website
Also known as a variation – or deed of family arrangement – this allows beneficiaries to rearrange or vary their entitlement. A deed of variation can be used by any person who receives a gift under a will to redirect their inheritance to another person. ... Changes can be made provided all the beneficiaries agree.
It’s a useful device as it can be used to reduce inheritance tax
