My mother recently changed her will and severed a joint tenancy with her husband (my stepfather) to provide greater certainty of me getting an inheritance (only child from previous marriage). The property is their residential property and the only property they own. They have been married 22 yrs. My mother is terminally ill with limited time left. She was advised he can still make a claim against her estate and my stepfather has indicated that he intends to do this. She had very valid personal reasons for making these changes and would like to know if there is anything else she can do prior to her passing to minimise the chance of him successfully contesting her will. Can she put a supporting letter stating why she has done this or alternatively would she be able to sell her share of the property to me for a nominal/small amount? Would that stop him from having grounds to contest? Any help would be welcome.
