If needs be you can change a person’s Will after death, provided any beneficiaries left worse off by the changes agree.
Even where there is no Will and the intestacy rules apply changes can be made to inheritances in the same way as if there is a Will.
Any changes must be completed within two years of the death.
Changes to reduce the amount of various taxes eg Inheritance or Capital Gains Tax payable are allowed
Also to provide for someone left out of the Will to inherit is acceptable.
Transferring assets to a Trust can be made.
Uncertainties contained in the Will can be clarified
All of these can be done by means of a ‘variation’ which need not even be a formal deed. A letter will suffice provided the conditions noted above are adhered to.
So you see all is not lost and can be put right with proper consideration and planning
