Scottish Law Questions? Ask a Scots Lawyer
Yes. It is:
For the attention of my Executors. Notwithstanding the provisions of my will of [date of will in 2004], it is my wish that [the address in Scotland] remains [name of son's] home if that is his wish. [My Mother's name and date of 'codicil'.]
I did speak to her about this when she was alive and she just didn't want my brother turfed out after she died. A lawyer and myself were both present when she wrote this, but neither of us said much.
Thank you. This confirms what I was told earlier. As it happens I am the sole Executor and as I was present when my late Mother wrote the codicil, this uncertainty is my fault. I should have asked her to specify a time period but as the time she was rather upset about what would happen to my brother so I just left it as it was.
