Hello, I am Law Denning and I
am a practising solicitor in a High Street practice. I have been an expert on
this website in UK law since 2008. During that time, as you appreciate, I have
answered thousands of questions from satisfied users on a variety of subjects.
Because we are all in practice with clients and court and other users, I might
not always respond in minutes, particularly evenings and weekends. Please bear
with me in that case
It is my pleasure to try and assist you with this today.
I'm sorry to have to tell you that if
your wife died before her aunt then your wife gets nothing and neither do you. It
would be different if your wife was the testators daughter and you had children
because under section 33 of the Wills act, grandchildren inherit if a
beneficiary has children and the beneficiary has predeceased the testator.
I'm afraid there is no provision for
you to get anything unless you are specifically mentioned in the will.
I'm sorry, I appreciate that this is
not the answer you wanted but there is no point in me misleading you.
Does that answer the question? Can I
assist any further?
I am happy to follow up any individual
point you make
I am online and off-line each day and
most weekends so please bear with me if I do not come back to you within
Please don't forget to positively rate
my answer service (even if it was not what you want to hear). If you don't rate
it positively, then the site keep your deposit and I get 0 for my time. It is
imperative that you give my answer a positive rating. It doesn't give me "a pat
on the head", "good boy" (like ebay), it is my livelihood!
If in ratings you feel that you expected more or it only helped a little,
please ask. Thank you.
