I am looking at a life time settlement (life interest in property to settlor done many years ago in the hope of avoiding care fees).
The witness for the settlor (mum) and one of the trustees (son) is the son’s wife.
There is a life interest for mum with the default being to son absolutely. However the potential beneficiaries during the Trust Period are listed as :
"The Settlor, her children and their spouses "
Is this Deed void on the basis that the witness is the wife as a potential beneficiary?
Any guidance on this would be gratefully received.
