The Court ruled last week that a Daughter who cared for elderly mother is ONLY sibling entitled to the house.
The Deceased made a Will in 1986 splitting the Estate between the 4 siblings. However, in 2015 she changed her Will to leave the property to her daughter. She stated that she was doing so because her sons had not taken care of her, and her daughter had been the sole carer for years. The 3 sons claimed that the 1986 Will should be reinstated but “the judge has upheld the 2015 will, saying there was no evidence to support their claims and adding that it was not his job to rule whether the will was ‘fair’, only whether it was valid.”
Three brothers who were written out of their mother's will after their sister was 'the only one who cared for her in her final years' have lost their court battle for a share of their mother's £1million home.
Brothers Remo, Nino and David Rea took their own sister, Rita, to court, claiming she had tricked their mother, Anna, into making her the sole inheritor of her £1million home in Tooting, south London.
Mrs Rea, who died aged 86 in July 2016, always had a 'soft spot' for her daughter, who was formerly a talented tennis player and cared for her mother during the final years of her life.
