Three certainties - please help!Watch
Nathan died in April 2020, leaving a valid homemade will which contained the following disposition:
(a) The money in my current TSB bank account is to be shared equally between my closest friends.
The rest of Nathan’s property was left to his daughter, Jessica. Nathan also had a savings account with Barclays which was in his name. However, him and his sister, Carrie, had used the account to save a variety of sums that they had won from small lotteries that they played every week. They also used this account for many years together to save any winnings. In addition, they used the money, to pay for trips which they went on together from time to time. Carrie argues that half of the money in the Barclays account belongs to her and therefore it should not pass to Jessica.
Explain whether the disposition in Nathan’s will is valid and whether Carrie is entitled to half of the money in the Barclays savings account.
