My father died early last year, leaving the proceeds of his flat to be divided amongst the family. This has yet to be done (the other co-executor is currently living there and is slow to move out).
One of the provisions was to leave £1000 to each of the grandchildren/great grandchildren. At the time of his death that was 7 individuals. Now I learn that my niece is pregnant and I would like it clarified if the new child has to be included in the settlement.
My understanding is that the beneficiaries can only be those who were 'in existence' at the time of my my father's death. Am I correct?
I'm asking because I want to know what the
are and to avoid unnecessary squabbling......
