Thank you. The grandmother had 3 children 1 predeceased is correct. The predeceased child had two children one who sadly died before the grandmother. So where they were entitled to a sixth each when there were two, you are saying that the sixth left to the deceased grandchild passes automatically to the other grandchild. I ask for confirmation because this answer is in conflict with a previous answer I had on this subject ( not from yourselves)
No there is not a surviving spouse and yes there was a will, and the will left everything to the two surviving children. ie the Grandmothers children.
Thank you for your reply it has been very helpful.
So for example if the Grandmother left 12,000 pounds the two children and the grandchild would be entitled to a share of 6000 pounds which would be (in this case) 2000 each, and the rest of the estate would go to who it was willed to?
I will be leaving positive feedback.
Thank you again.
One more question has arisen, if the legal rights are not claimed by the two children and they claim their legacy under the will does the grandchild get the full half of the moveable assets as in my example 6000 or still gets a sixth of the moveable estate. Thanks for your time, I don't know much about these things.
Hello, am I allowed another question or should I go through the fee process again?
If I am able to ask:
There are two accounts in English Building Societies, whose terms say governed by English Law, do these accounts come out with the scope of legal rights?
