My uncle left me his shares in a business and some property shortly before he died of a brain tumour. He was medically examined at the time of making the will to ensure he wasn’t confused. His tumour meant he had episodic confusion.
Following my uncles death, his brother claimed that all the shares had been sold to him at a period after he willed the shares to me and before his death.
they provided a signed bill of sale and said they had paid my uncle £50,000 cash. He was bedbound at this point and had difficulty talking and comprehending. No-one witnessed the transaction and no-one saw any cash. He had carers every day, they saw nothing.
Can I challenge this?
My uncle’s brothers solicitor said it was a valid bill of sale and he did not need a medical examination to sell his property. What can I do in this situation?
