A close relative of mine was very close to a elderly lady and they supported each other over many years. She told him she had left something unspecified in her will.
She died and at her funeral one of her two sons confirmed that she had left something for my relative and mentioned a sum of £30k. Months went by and eventually my relative asked the son where they were with the will. He was very sheepish and said there was nothing written down and that was that. He will not give sight of the will.
Where does he stand legally?
