    Assuming it's a joint mortgage, the whole of the shortfall would then go to your OH, not just half of it.

    Best wishes to your MIL for a speedy recovery and for a return to health.

    There is no such thing as an inheritance until someone actually pops their clogs.

    On the subject of the will, it is 'absolute' thanks to my FIL's wishes, so can't be changed.


    Thanks all

    Glad to here your MIL is better today foulplay13, my last grandparent is in hospital at the moment, and it seems more a matter of when rather than if at the moment, but she keeps bounceing back, much to the surprise of the medical staff, which is her to a tee, she has not had an easy life, so why make anyone elses life easy, bless her


    The one thing that always gets me with inheratence posts, does any of the crics actually stop to think what the auther of the will wants:confused:

    Most parents have worked hard, not only to make there life confortable, but so they can leave something to there kids, and more poiniant, grandkids.

    Has anyone stopped to think the auther of the will may, if still alive, Object to it being swollowed up in a BR, and if they knew they may not have written the will the way they did.

    Something for anyone writing a will to think about
    Thats it, i am done, Blind-as-a-Bat has left the forum, for good this time, there is no way I can recover this account, as the password was random, and not recorded, and the email used no longer exits, nor can be recovered to recover the account, goodbye all ………….

    BaaB - thats exactly why my Dad changed his will. He mentioned it first (if I remember rightly) and he was the one who looked into things as to what he could and couldn't do. As far as he was concerned, he was not intending to die at any point but if he was damned if his hard earned (very hard earned at some points) cash was going to my OR because of my circumstances. He wanted the money to make my life and my kids lives, better.

    And its his money. He can do what he pleases with it. He also threatened toperhaps buy shares in Ipswich Town football club instead.. :rolleyes:

    foulplay dont let the negative posts get to you, its basicly part and parcel of this forum.

    Hi foulplay, i totally agree with lisa. you have asked a valid question and one that most (even if not admitted) would like to know the answer to.
    I am in a similar situation to you and hoping that the future will be a brighter place with the help of inheritance. At the end of the day this is what life is about and inheritance is a natural thing and a way for a fresh start.
    I hope that you manage to sort it out and protect what could be just what you need for a new beginning - good luck

    Hi foulplay. I agree with you and I would do anything necessary to protect any inheritance. I see nothing wrong with that and I don't expect people to be so judgmental on this forum. I hope your MIL makes a full recovery and lives on for many years.

    I'm making no comment on the original poster's question - I'm sure I wouldn't have been happy had i received an inheritance whilst BR and it got swallowed up.

    However, comments like "what did the author want" etc annoy me - it's irrelevant. If possible, change the will before going BR. If thats not possible just accept that the inheritance will go into the pot.

    All of us who go BR are wiping out a mass of debt and start with a clean slate (and hopefully better financial habits) after a year. Foregoing things like our cars or a portion of inheritance is a small price to pay.

    Don't think of what you will lose in BR, think of what you gain - no phone calls, no balliffs at the door, no letters and most of all no debt.

    Stolen inheritance
    Hi, would like some advice on the following:
    not sure if this is in the right place to post but
    My brother in law passed away two years ago and left his three sons £15000 each and his wife was left £15.000 plus £9,000 cash which was left to make sure she used it for upkeep of the house.
    The oldest son got his money straight away as he was over 21, the middle son`s money was put into a trust fund with stipulations that he could not have it until he turned 21 and has been employed for over 12 months, and the youngest son who is 7, his money was also put into a trust until he reached 21, so my wife and my brother in laws wife opened the bank accounts for the two sons and made sure that it needed two signatures to withdraw any money from these accounts.
    But for some reason after a year the bank changed the account and put the accounts on via internet banking which both had access to but didn’t realise that either one of them could take the money at any time.
    Any way the brother in laws wife phoned us and asked could she borrow £4000 from the youngest sons account which she was told NO as we had to keep to what the will stated.
    She has spent the £15,000 and the £9,000 left to her but had spent it all within two years, after she was told no, my wife phoned the bank to get a block on the account which would take 48 hours, but before the bank could block the accounts she had taken all the money out of both accounts, she then put £15,000 into one sons account and said he can have it, but as per his father`s will he is not allowed to have it until he reaches 21 and has been in paid employment for 12 months.
    She has taken the other sons money another £15,000 and moved it into her own account and spent some of it.
    We have been in touch with the bank to find out how she could have taken this money when it should have been two signatures to get the money, still waiting for the bank to reply.
    We have also informed the solicitor who did the will but again waiting for the reply.
    What I would like to know should we inform the police that she has stolen this money as what she has done has gone against my brother in laws will.

    Hello JKSTF1969,

    I think you need to start a new thread about this on the Deaths, Funerals and Probate board under Marriage, Relationships and Families. Can you copy and re-post it over there? "New Thread" is on top left.
