what the hell does it matter who gets what when a person is dead? unless its money left to a wife or partner or kids or parent who really needs it to get by who wants anything unless its something really personal? posessions mean nothing when somone is dead. speaking from real and very raw experience death and wills bring out a horrible and greedy side to some people.
The rules in Scotland are different, spouses and children have rights to the estate to matter what you say in your will. I think it is 1/3 each. I.e. 1/3 to the spouse and 1/3 shared between the children. The remaining third (minus debts and liabilities) can be given to whomever I like: probably my family anyway or some charity.
Have to agree. When my gran died there was a huge fallout about who gets how much and a lot of money went "missing" and certain people seemed to benefit a lot more than others.
apart from the house, which, due to us buying as an unwed couple, is a complicated arrangement. i do have life insurance, so if i died the mortgage would be paid off. at that point a certain percentage is mine and so would also be left to my parents, and the remainder would be split between us, with my half beloning to my parents and the other belonging to mr. kaff. i'm sure they'd let him have it though.
our title deeds state that the property be left to the survivor, so if something happens to one of us the other would automatically be the full owner, plus we have life insurance so the mortgage would be paid.
Did you specify that?
Normally what happens is that the survivor holds it on trust for the dead person's estate, basically to prevent the survivor being turfed out. But it doesn't belong to the survivor, only half does.
