I am reviewing mirror wills whereby the first spouse to die placed their beneficial tenancy in common on life interest trust for the survivor (presumably with care fees planning in mind). The survivor was also to benefit from residue with the children only to benefit from residue on the second death. The remainder interest of the property trust is stated to be held “as an accretion to my residuary estate”. When the trust comes to an end on the surviving spouse’s death, how will that interest be dealt with, given that the surviving spouse (the beneficiary of the first spouse’s residuary estate) will have died? I normally name the children as the remainder beneficiaries of the property trust but can see that various precedents provide for the “accretion to my residuary estate” or similar wording.
