Vucicevic & Anor v Aleksic & Ors [2017] EWHC 2335 (Ch) (20 September 2017)

A home made will that reads like an examination paper on testamentary wishes and the difficulties about expressing them correctly, without the benefit of technical advice.  Including

  • misnaming a charity (and the process to follow if the charity cannot be ascertained)
  • amending a will after the will has been executed (and dependent revocation)
  • executing the will without a date
  • use of the term “money” and ascertaining residue
  • domicile and the conflict of laws and renvoi in relation to overseas property
  • establishment of a trust
  • establishment of beneficial entitlement or charitable trust
  • role of a trustee

 

All this and more – in one case…
