Some Wills contain very complicated and lengthy terms such as life interests and testamentary trusts.
Executors need to ensure they not only abide by law when administering the estate but adhere strictly to the obligations and powers granted to them by the Will itself.
Scandalous and Offensive Terms.
On occasions Wills contain clauses or terms that may be considered offensive or scandalous.
When a Will is admitted to Probate it becomes a public document and as such offensive and scandalous terms and references need to be avoided.
An application to the Supreme Court can result in such terms or words being deleted from a Will so as not to cause offence.
