Rectification of a Will

I am dealing with an application for rectification of a Will, to add an overriding power of appointment of capital to the life tenant, which was omitted from the signed Will as a result of clerical error.

Notice needs to be given to anyone prejudiced by the proposed rectification. My question is whether the remaindermen need to be given notice, or whether it is just the life tenant and trustees who need to be given notice? The interest in the remaindermen vests on the death of the life tenant, save that one of the remaindermen is a charity. Any thoughts or comments welcome.

in my view it is correct to give the remaindermen the notice.

best wishes

The remaindermen should certainly be given notice, as the inclusion of this power has a direct bearing on the value of their remainder interest (which will effectively become a defeasible interest as a result of the rectification)
