Often people fail to mention beneficiary in their wills and inheritance matters who will have expected to inherit the property and this often leads to a deliberate exclusion. It often happens when you wish to distribute your estate under different circumstances and this may lead to exclusion. A deliberate exclusion case may happen when a child would simply be considered as a beneficiary of the Will and don’t want to be the beneficiary of the tax. Other reason could be that another person has enough wealth and they do not wish to require any further.
There can be another reason as well where the child has a strained relation with and you don’t wish to let them get benefits from your estate in any case. To some, this may sound extreme, but this happens a lot in the surrounding. There are cases where parents spend thousands, but the child has let them down after some time.
Mention Exclusion in the Will
The wills and inheritance consider the exclusion clause which can be added deliberately thus naming the other person and their name and relation with you. The clause clearly states that the person in the question should receive no part of the estate of the deceased person. A separate letter can also be created where the person explains the reason for exclusion in details. The letter must be signed and dated by the person before its death and must be stored with the Will. The Will must be signed and witnessed but the letter of wishes is not required to.
It is advised not to attach any letter to the Will because if they get detached then it could be the sign of tampering with the Will and this will going to invalidate the Will. The deliberate clause of exclusion in the Will should not go in any more detail than the mentioned.
