Please could I obtain some clarification on the following:-
Mr X died in Sept 2020. He was a widower and inherited everything from Mrs X approx. 6 years ago.
Mrs X had a child (Child A) in her early 20s, who was adopted and Mrs X and Child A never met each other again – not Mr X’s child and Mr X never had any children of his own.
Mr X and Child A became friendly in the last five years or so and Mr X has left quite a lot of his estate to Child A.
Can we claim the RNRB for Child A – would he qualify as a “step child” or another eligible descendant in this scenario?
As ever, your thoughts greatly appreciated.
