Can you type out the paragraph dealing with the payment on death please?
That's fine. You will have to type out the relevant clause, it should refer to the "my residuary estate"
What does it say before the sentence beginning "My Trustees shall held the net proceeds of such sale"
Which if the persons named are you?
Okay, which of the persons referred to in the passage are you?
Yes, that means that you have been named as the jointly beneficiary of the estate of the deceased person along with J Ong. You will be entitled to half of the estate of the deceased following payment of funeral expenses, debts and any other legacies made in the Will.
If you have also been named as one of the trustees then that means you are one of the executors of the estate which means that you shall be responsible for the administration of the estate upon death. You will have to account for any inheritance tax payable, apply for probate and divide the estate in accordance with the WIll.
