Would appreciate thoughts on the following:
Mr X died 2007. Wife was sole beneficiary. The estate was varied after death leaving a discretionary trust legacy of the NRB to spouse, issue and remoter descendants (there are two adult children). The estate was all transferred to the spouse, backed up agreement by her to repay the debt, £260,000 (which was the NRB at the time). The estate included the family home but I am not sure if this was held as joint tenants or tenants in common. She has now died and the debt will need to be repaid by her estate.
Her estate passes to her two children. Question is can we claim her late husband’s RNRB? We are able to claim hers.
Any advice appreciated.
